At the beginning of the patriotic action cyclists gathered on Olimpiyskaya alley near entertainment complex “Diesel-Arena” and then moved to the city center in the direction of the trade and entertainment center “Vysshaya Liga,” where the pedestrian event participants were expecting them to arrive.
At 11.00, the column headed by cyclists carrying flags, began moving down Moskovskaya Street to Lenina Square. The participants who were honored to carry the national flag, walked, holding it by the edges, in the end of the column. In the center most of the assembled citizens were moving.
When the activists went across Maksima Gorkogo Street, the police officers temporarily restricted the traffic movement on it.
The representatives of the regional department of “Young Guard of United Russia” handed out white, blue and red balloons, and little flags one side of which was the tricolor and the other bore the text of “Victory Day” song.
Despite the fact that cyclists initially separated from the column, going too fast, later the pace leveled.
Turning at trade center “Imperia,” the activists lined up in front of the monument to Vladimir Lenin, giving way to those bearing the state flag, and then they all sang in choir the Russian national anthem.
After that, the action participants had their picture taken.
