This morning in front of the Vasil Levski National Stadium in Sofia will be the start of the second edition of the Sofia Bike Relay. The cyclists will ride a four-kilometer route along central streets and boulevards. 

A team race with company players will start after the end of the bike ride. The event, part of the European Mobility Week, is a charity event and 30% of the entry fees will be donated to support the "Social-Emotional Learning through Sport" project of the "Together in Class" Foundation. The project aims to integrate social-emotional skills into the sports activities of students from 1st to 12th grade. 

Those who register for the Sofia Bike Relay at https://sofiabikerelay.com/registration-free-tour/ will be entered into a lottery. The winner will receive a new electric bike.
