Various celebrations and events are held to mark the 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s independence. The anniversary date was also celebrated with the bike ride in the picturesque Central Park of Manhattan in New York. It was organized by the Consulate General of Kazakhstan in New York under the auspices of the Kazakh-American Alliance. Amateur cyclists and children were among the participants. A legendary Kazakh cyclist, Olympic champion Alexander Vinokourov symbolically led this sports event. It was he who had scored numerous victories for our country at the dawn of independence and continues to attract more and more Kazakhs to cycling sport.
