This year, several world renowned cities will host a popular sporting and cultural event – Velonotte. It is a unique series of night bike tours, focused on architecture, landscapes and key monuments.

      The event will take place in Moscow, St. Petersburg, London, Florence and Venice.

      VeloNotte was created in 2007 by Russian historian Sergey Nikitin, the founding director of MosKultProg.

      The first tour was held in Moscow and was dedicated to Russian and Soviet architect Konstantin Stepanovich Melnikov. After it had gained popularity among public, the non-profit event took place in Rome in 2012 and New York in 2011.

      On the night of 22 June, 2012, the bike tour starts in London, giving the chance to see the Olympic city.

      On July 14-15, Velonotte Pietrogrado (or White Night Bike Tour) will take place in St. Petersburg, presenting fresh view on the urban heritage.

      The pearl of the season will be musical programs in Florence and Venice, which are created together with Italian scientists and artists.

      As for the Russian capital, Velonotte will be the sixth time's event, planned for 26-27 May, 2012.

      Participation is free of charge, but it is necessary to register here.

      To participate you need to have with you: a bike, a pump, FM-radio with headphones, a bike-lock, a raincoat and a helmet on your head.
