This Weekend: Car-Free In Budapest & Around Hungary
"A Critical Mass bicycle ride, a car-free weekend, an alternative car show and many other events will be organised in Budapest and throughout Hungary between September 16-22 to mark European Mobility Week. It's worth noting that major downtown avenues will be closed to traffic.

The aim is to draw attention to the harmful effects of present modes of transport on human health.

Organisers will also stage a race to downtown by car, bicycle and public transport.

The annual Critical Mass bicycle ride will take place on September 22."
