Excellency, Deputy Prime Minister of Turkmenistan, Chairperson of the State Women’s Council Gozel Rejepova, and the Minister of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan, Orazgeldy Shokhmuradov, accompanied him.

This morning, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, who is on vacation, went for a bike ride along the Caspian coast and worked out at the “Avaza” sports complex. This is in line with the initiatives of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan, Hero Arkadag to promote the principles of healthy living in the country, the encouragement of systematic physical exercises and sports in society, which are being successfully implemented at the present time, during the Revival of the New Epoch of the Powerful State, under the leadership of Arkadag Serdar.

The air on the Caspian coast, especially in the “Avaza” National Tourist Zone, is cool and fresh in the early morning. This indicates that a high level of environmental well-being is maintained not only in this region, but throughout the country, and the ongoing work in this area is yielding positive results.

Enhancing the population’s health, popularizing and strengthening the principles of a healthy lifestyle in modern society are among the most important areas of the state policy being pursued, which has a clearly expressed social character.

Bicycle rides regularly taken by the head of state, which are the role model for young people, create wide opportunities for the development of cycling, a world-famous and, not least, eco-friendly sport in the country.

As it is known, National Leader of the Turkmen people, Hero Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov laid down a wonderful and lofty tradition of holding mass bicycle rides. This initiative is widely supported and approved among our compatriots who have been participating with pleasure for all these years in regularly organized sporting events in the country that promote health and cultivate a respect for the environment in people.

At the suggestion of Turkmenistan, World Bicycle Day, established according to the relevant Resolution of the UN General Assembly, is widely celebrated every year on June 3. This fact has become another evidence of the international recognition of the noble initiative of the Hero Arkadag, the high appreciation of the efforts of our country in the field of sports, physical culture and health improvement, fostering an ecological worldview in society as the basis for sustainable development on a national scale and globally.

The establishment of this date, which embodies universal human values such as health, solidarity, friendliness and commitment to humanistic ideals, opens up great opportunities for popularizing sports as a messenger of peace, strengthening fruitful cooperation between countries and peoples.

Another step was the unanimous adoption at the 61st plenary meeting of the 76th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations on March 15, 2022, at the proposal of Turkmenistan, of the Resolution “Integration of mainstream bicycling into public transportation systems for sustainable development”, co-sponsored by 62 states of the world.

All this testifies to the steady growth of the international prestige of neutral Turkmenistan, which is confidently implementing its peace-loving policy based on broad international cooperation.

It should also be noted that two important events included in the Guinness Book of Records, were held in 2018 and 2019 in Ashgabat, “The largest cycling awareness lesson” and “The longest single line bicycle parade that united 2019 cyclists”.

Carrying out landmark sporting events that enhance spiritual strength and stamina, the number of cycling enthusiasts that has significantly increased in recent years in the country, testifies to the success of the state level activity to develop this sport. Moreover, this is yet another confirmation of the success of the state’s efforts aimed at the development of high-performance public physical culture and sports.

The bicycle, being a simple and widely available mode of transport, is an excellent means of transportation and travel.

Bicycle riding allows spending your leisure time outdoors in an interesting, useful and enjoyable manner at almost any time of the year. Science has proven that in the process of cycling, due to moderate physical activity, the endurance and performance of the human body increase, the joints and muscles, and the nervous system are strengthened.

Cycling helps to stabilize blood pressure, reduce the risk of cardiovascular and other diseases, as well as optimize energy metabolism, enhance immunity, and give a long-lasting liveliness.

In addition, cycling can relieve stress, get rid of excess calories. In general, all this has a beneficial effect on a person’s health, physical, psychological and emotional state, making up the perfect balance of a positive mood and maximum benefits for the body.

At the same time, a bicycle is also the most environmentally friendly mode of transport, which is of particular importance in the context of implementing the environmental policy.

Thus, many new seedlings are planted annually within the “Avaza” National Tourist Zone, due to which the sea coast is covered with forest belts, the area of which is expanding every year. Modern recreation sites for people that meet international standards have also been created.

Under the wise leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, a lot of work is carried out in the country aimed at ensuring environmental safety, implementing the National Forest Program, protecting the beautiful nature of the native land, flora and fauna, enriching, scientifically studying and preserving biodiversity.

The forest-park zones created within Avaza form a single look with high-rise buildings and road infrastructure facilities that have become an adornment of the Caspian coast. Rest on the sea helps people improve their health, cheers them up, and they want to return to this paradise of the fertile Turkmen land again and again!

Particular importance here, as well as throughout the country, is given to the development of sports and recreational movement. Cycling is a great way to spend your free time, explore the territory of the resort area and breathe in the healing sea air, being filled with exceptionally positive emotions.

In addition to the obvious health benefits, cycling allows admiring the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Time spent outdoors, especially in the morning, fills with a burst of inspiration, strength for the whole day.

It should be noted that vacationers, whose number in Avaza is growing year by year, are provided with health-improving services of the highest quality. The conditions created for a good rest testify to the success of the socially oriented policy of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, the main goal of which is the prosperity of our Independent Neutral Homeland, the happiness and wellbeing of the people.

The wonderful traditions laid down by the Hero Arkadag, which have been widely recognized both in our country, and abroad, are now continued by Arkadag Serdar, who is guided by the key principle “The State is for People!”.

Today, high-class boarding houses, hotels with medical and therapeutic departments, children’s health resorts, cottages for family vacations, and sports complexes are put into operation and are being built in this unique natural recreational complex on the Caspian coast.

Favorable climate, rich health and resort potential of the Caspian coast, the most comfortable conditions for recreation and health-improvement, modern technologies and innovations being introduced, the best achievements of world architecture and engineering used in construction, as well as a well-considered, wide-ranging approach to the further development of the popular marine resorts turn our Homeland into a “pearl: by the sea, a health resort of international importance, a recognized center of sports.
