Bicycle is a lift to health

Last Saturday of June, many Muscovites and guests of the capital, who decided to spend the weekend at the territory of park zone of VDNH, were pleasantly surprised. At noon, a motley cavalcade of cyclists appeared at alleys.

Velo promo of representatives of the lift industry «Bicycle is lift to health «was organized by the National Elevator Union (NLU) and JSC VDNH. The event was held within preparation for the International exhibition of elevators and elevator equipment Russian Elevator Week 2017.



– The idea of our bike ride was in the air for a long time, until the information policy Committee of NLU did not undertake to implement it in practice – commented the chief editor of information and analytical magazine “Liftinform" Svetlana Matsal. – We have participated in many bike promotion events, but for the first time we held a "veloride" on our own in May last year. That year the ride through Vorobevy Gory and Gorky Park ending on the platform of Hyde Park with mini-rally in support of the movement against vandalism in elevators brought together more than 70 participants. The success was incredible and everyone loved it. So it was decided to continue this tradition and make such velorides of representatives of the lift industry on the regular basis.

– We gained organizational experience by taking part in various bicycle events of Moscow, – says Konstantin Golin, the head of public relations. – Only this year we rode the winter parade, which was held in Moscow on January 9, supported spring action "To work by bike”, rode along Moscow garden ring within Moscow veloride and participated in the promo ride "Bike is better than cigarettes".


Good occasion to ride a bike for representatives of the lift industry was the preparation for the International exhibition of elevators and elevator equipment Russian Elevator Week 2017. Co-organizers of the expo project, employees of JSC VDNH, has offered to host veloride at the park zone of VDNH.


– We are pleased that over the past few years VDNH has become the center of attraction of the most interesting projects in different sectors of the economy, – said Svetlana Abramova, the head of exhibition projects JSC "VDNH". – Over 24 million people visit VDNH every year! Hundreds of wonderful festival and entertainment projects are held for Muscovites and guests of the capital. EXPO area is a modern congress and exhibition platform of the world level. It provides an excellent communication platform for businesspersons in the framework of the top exhibition events. Perhaps, the main event for representatives of the lift industry of Russia and CIS -International exhibition Russian Elevator Week -2017 occupies an important place. It is the place where new trends are born, modern technology are showcased, and current industry issues are discussed.


Early Saturday morning, it was noisy and fun in front of the pavilion 75. Music was playing, helium balloons, were drawn up and participants tried on sports bibs and baseball caps with logos of the organizers. More than 60 participants of the event represented at least ten organizations not only of the lifting community. There were employees of the Association "National Association of builders" headed by Viktor Pryadein, chief of NOSTROY.
"We are sincerely grateful for the invitation to this great celebration of health, – shared his impressions of the event Victor. – Many of our employees came with their families and children. Hope, next time we will take a more active part not only in the event but also in its preparation."

Eugene Agitaev, head of the Department of the Central Committee of trade Union of workers of life-support, in his speech within the opening ceremony said that once again representatives of the lift industry proved the ability of not only work well, but also to relax.

"The second time we accepted the invitation and will continue to participate in such lift industry events",– assured organizers Dmitry Bachmanov, leading engineer of PTO “SU-162 Mosliftmontazh". It is one of the major organizations performing works on installation and commissioning of all types of elevators in residential, administrative and industrial buildings, domestic and imported production in Moscow, Moscow region, Yaroslavl, Togliatti and Murmansk.

Editorial Board, " Chairman of TSZH” sent to veloride a delegation of journalists and representatives of homeowners' associations, headed by editor-in-chief, the tireless Saule Berkimbaeva. "We always respond to interesting events and are glad to participate. When I learned about the upcoming cycling event, there was no hesitation about participating in it. Besides, organizers managed to link celebration of sport and social action to combat vandalism in one. It is close to us and we are worried about this, because our publication is distributed among heads of TSZH, ZHSK, in which elevators do not play the least role." This was confirmed by speech of Alla Sokolova, Chairman of TSZH 8 “Tsuryupa".


What is more, in the delegation was the person about whom it is impossible not to say a few admiring words. Denisova Tamara is the veteran of work and a Komsomol member, an athlete, and just a bright example of love for life. Despite her impressive age of 80 years old, she successfully rode the route.

Why is bike so lovely? Because it brings together everyone and provide an opportunity to combine pleasant pastime with a serious, useful thing. Since we mentioned the oldest participant, let’s call the youngest one. Mark Saveliev was the youngest cyclist. He is 6-year-old, son of Nikolay Saveliev, chief engineer, LLC "Expert organization of Russia" from Serpukhov.


There was many children in event.  Hope that they as well as adults imbued with the concern for the purity and safety of our elevators. In her address to participants at the opening ceremony, Svetlana Mazel noted that every year thousands of elevator companies in the country spend on removal of vandalism action hundreds of millions of rubles, instead of putting these funds to the installation of new modern lifting equipment.


The cycling route took more than an hour and covered nearly 10 km. 12 marshals and representatives of the Cycling club «Night. Bike. Ride" professionally provided the safety of cyclists.


Veloride was completed at the main entrance to the exhibition hall with a loud exclamation "hurrah!" and launch into the sky hundreds of balloons with the logo of the upcoming exhibition Russian Elevator Week 2017. In conclusion, Ivan Diacov, Vice President of NLU, Coordinator of the SRO building in the city of Moscow thanked all cyclist for their active participation in the health fair and invited the next year to support industry representatives in this action, which will take place on the eve of the international elevator exhibition.
