- Dear residents and guests of Shymkent! I congratulate you on the opening of the first cycling rental stations in the city ! In developed countries, residents of megapolises have successfully used two-wheeled transport. This solves the problem of traffic jams, reduces the number of accidents on the roads. Besides, cycling improves health. The transition to the use of bicycles - a global trend, and Shymkent should not stay behind. Launching the project «Shymkent Bike» - is one more step in the development of our native city. We express our gratitude to the Fund "Samruk-Kazyna" and the Kazakhstan Cycling Federation for their support of this project.
