NUSA DUA, Indonesia – At least 200 bicycles are available on loan to all attendees of the climate change meeting which takes place this week in Bali. The participants of the UN conference will get to know the advantages of bicycle as means of transportation. Initially some 700 bicycles were planned but some parties cancelled their delivery.

The bicycles together with 120 buses are a response to expected heavy traffic with increased carbon emissions during the UN climate change meeting. Roads within the Nusa Dua tourist enclave conference venue will also be closed to traffic to reduce traffic congestion and emissions loads.

Scorching heat

The infrastructure in the Nusa Dua enclave suits very well for biking while the scorching heat makes it hard for walking. Not all visitors of the conference will be able to use the bicycles for transportation as an estimated 15,000 people are expected to take part in the climate conference.
