Whether you’re eager to add some spark to your workout or would like to pick up a new sport, these five activities will do the job for you.
The first in this academic year, but 16th overall – yesterday’s traditional Bike Ride with the Rector coincided luckily with the last day of a short Indian summer. The event brought together dozens of students, lecturers, and staff of ITMO University. Together, they traveled the customary route through Primorsky Victory Park and over Yakhtenny Bridge. Despite a busy schedule, the university’s Rector Vladimir Vasilyev led the event – and so did the staff of ITMO.NEWS. Here’s what we saw there.
We here at ITMO like our bikes: they are convenient, eco-friendly, and are a fun, healthy alternative to the city’s public transport. Moreover, they can even be a part of a long-standing tradition, such as our Bike Ride with the Rector. Here is everything you will need to know to explore the bike life in St. Petersburg, courtesy of our staff and students.
Though summer’s nearly at its end, there’s still plenty of time to find new experiences or rediscover old ones. But with the health concerns still looming over us, what are we left to do?

How to create a bike-friendly environment in the border regions of Russia and Finland, help cycling tourists effectively plan their itineraries, and foster the development of local businesses that would cater for such travelers? These are some of the questions in the center of the BizCycle international project. Having kicked off in November this year, it is now being implemented as part of the South-East Finland – Russia Cross-Border Cooperation program, with ITMO as the leading partner. The university’s specialists will work on the project together with representatives of Finnish companies, the Committee for Tourism of the Leningrad Oblast, and the Tourism Information Center. The objectives and stages of BizCycle’s implementation were recently discussed at a briefing organized for St. Petersburg’s cycling community. ITMO.NEWS reports on the keynotes of the meeting.
