Tour d’ÖÖ

On 6th of June was Tour d’ÖÖ, part of Tallinn Bicycle Week:
As Tour d’ÖÖ is probably biggest bicycle ride in Tallinn, then we decided that it would be great to cruise along. For some of us cruise started from our Laboratory and closer we got to city centre, more bicycles we saw. When we arrived at Freedom Square, view was spectacular – whole square was covered with cyclists and their bicycles. From Tour d’ÖÖ took part nearly 3000 cyclists.

On square we found other Liberator’s and it was first time, when four Liberators where together – white, red and black, blue and green. Additionally couple other electric bicycles. Getting from square to street took a while.
Several thousand cyclists on street is huge crowd and cruise was more like stop and walking with bicycle, so Liberator’s height was perfect for this kind of ride. We could just sit on our bikes and in need just push ourselves on. But we got to ride too and in general it was great experience to ride with all those cyclists. After cruise we, as most of other cyclists, gathered in Telliskivi Loomelinnak to enjoy evening events.
