The 13th Belgrade Chipsy Rolerijada has gathered over 3,000 participants from Serbia and abroad. Numerous competitors of various ages were delighted by this year’s novelty – a scooter race, initiated and organized by the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia.

This is how the Delegation of the European Union marked the Mobility Week, an event that happens every year in the cities and towns across Europe with the aim to draw attention to alternative and environmentally friendly modes of transport in congested metropolises. Some 200 competitors from 4 to 60 years of age took part, and the EU Delegation donated scooters to the first fifty to sign up for the Scooter Race. The youngest ones reached the finish line with the help of their parents and the celebrities who took part in this two-wheeler race.

Head of Delegation of the European Union to Serbia, Ambassador Vincent Degert, invited Serbian citizens to use alternative modes of transport instead of private cars as often as possible to help protect the environment, and added that the EU was supporting municipalities in their attempts to provide the best possible infrastructure and safety conditions for alternative means of transport.

The beginning of the race was symbolically marked by Ambassador Degert. The fastest seven got their prizes at the stand of the EU Delegation where the youngest and the oldest participants in the race were awarded too. In the spirit of Mobility Week, the prize for the first place was a ride in a balloon for four persons. Even those who did not race were able to hang around with the EU representatives in Serbia. A few thousands of Belgradians and guests from abroad visited the Delegation’s stand, as well as the directors and children of the care home for children Zvecanska and the daily children’s shelter Prihvatiliste za decu Beograd, who were presented with forty bicycles – a donation from the EU Delegation – by Ambassador Degert.
