If you ditch your car to go to work next Wednesday, you may win a sports bicycle. The Dubai Municipality is giving away 100 sports bicycles to winners chosen among people registering to take part in its Car Free Day on February 19.

Residents have been urged to register online through the link http://carfreeday.dm.gov.ae/Register.aspx to pledge using any means of public transport and help reduce the carbon emission caused by cars.

Director of Corporate Marketing and Relations Department at DM, Mohamed Al Noori, said in a Press statement: “We have provided the e-link for the public, including organisations and individuals, based on the overwhelming demand from different categories of the society to join the green initiative of the Dubai Municipality in collaboration with 61 leading entities 
from both government and private sector.”

The most thrilling part of the initiative this year is that the civic body will be distributing 100 sports bicycles for the winners who registered online.

“We hope all residents of Dubai will explore this golden opportunity to spread a great message to the whole world, showing that our people are well aware of environment conservation and we will lead the world in terms of the awareness regarding the use of public transport, ” he said.

“It is our aspiration to set a world record by observing a complete car-free day in the emirate of Dubai and this can be accomplished only by with the complete cooperation of the community. Hence, it’s the duty of each member of the society to spread this message and encourage others to participate in the initiative,” said Al Noori.

“The amazing response from the residents and organisations in Dubai shows that this year we 
will exceed the expected target 
of participants and number of cars to be taken off the roads,” he 
added.

While announcing this year’s initiative on Sunday, Director-General of Dubai Municipality Hussain Nasser Lootah estimated that about 7,000 people are expected to participate in the event.
