Biker of the month. Weiz (Austria)

By News Editor / Updated: 29 Aug 2014

Every month photos of some bikers in Weiz are taken by a member of the council for mobility management. One picture is taken for the municipal paper “Weiz Präsent”. As a motivational action the person in it is announced to be the biker of the month. He/She can come to the municipality and gets a little prize from the local bike and sports shops, a credit note worth 20 Euros.

Background & Objectives

Too many people use their car even for short distances which is the reason for frequent traffic jams and noise in the city. Of course it causes a lot of environmental problems and leads to different health problems as well, due to lack of movement.>

Implementation

Every month photos of some bikers in Weiz are taken by a member of the council for mobility management. One picture is taken for the community paper “Weiz Präsent”. The person in it is announced to be the biker of the month. He/She can come to the municipality and gets a little prize from the local bike and sports shops, a credit note worth 20 Euros.

Conclusions

Each month a photo of a usual biker is shown in the community paper. Some people might be a little bit concerned when they see their photo in a newspaper without being asked. But up to now there has not been any problem.
