Public bicycles are an increasingly popular form of transport in 14 Croatian cities and municipalities, and today Vukovar joined the company and thus became the fifteenth and easternmost city in Croatia to introduce the Nextbike system of public bicycles.After the official presentation of the project, a test ride on public bicycles from the city center to Borovo naselje followed, with a short refreshment at Ina’s station. The Nextbike system of public bicycles in Croatia has 20.500 registered users, significantly reduces emissions, traffic jams, noise and parking problems, and cycling has a positive effect on mental and physical health.But the most important thing is that from today, Vukovar residents and all tourists can combine train, bus and public bicycles and thus travel faster, healthier and cheaper while protecting the environment in which we live – through integrated public transport. “In recent years, to the delight of the citizens, Vukovar has received several bicycle paths, of which the most important is certainly the one that is still under construction, ie the bicycle path along the state road D2 in the part of Kudeljarska and Priljevo streets. This is exactly the route we took on the new public bicycles and which is certainly the most important route because it connects the center of Vukovar and Borovo Naselje. Our citizens have a culture of cycling, so I am convinced that this initiative will be very well received. With the new bicycle path and bicycles in the public transport service, we will improve the connection of all parts of Vukovar and at the same time reduce traffic jams. This project is just one in a series of steps we are taking to raise the quality of life of our fellow citizens, but also to present our city in a new European spirit that will surely meet the approval of both citizens and tourists who see Vukovar as the central destination of the Croatian Danube region., ”Said Vukovar Mayor Ivan Penava.This greenest, healthiest and most cost-effective form of public urban transport is fully in line with EU directives and the vision and plans of the City of Vukovar related to sustainable development. Beautiful Vukovar, as the civilizational starting point of Europe in which culture developed for five thousand years and the city that suffered the greatest war destruction, needs projects facing the future. Development is a matter of piety, but also the fact that Vukovar citizens like all citizens of this country want to finally stand by their European neighbors, and this is possible only with continuous investment in sustainable construction, education, employment and sustainable mobility that connect all segments of society.Nextbike provides citizens, students and tourists with the most affordable, fastest, healthiest and most fun transportation. A user who registers nextbike bikes can use them in more than 140 cities around the world. Nextbike is ready to welcome new cities and companies that invest in sustainable mobility and continuously invests in new technologies and improving the user experience, says Krešimir Dvorski, director of the Public Bicycle System, adding that in order to feel safer in traffic, Nextbike organizes several cycling school and encourages cities to improve cycling infrastructure. “Launching a public bicycle system in Vukovar was our great wish a few years ago when we were thinking about how to connect the far east of Croatia with all other major county centers. By combining different forms of public transport, each of us can quickly, easily and conveniently get from point A to point B without owning a car. We thank the City of Vukovar and INA as the general sponsor of the system maintenance for recognizing the importance of the project for the local community. Thanks to them, from today, the people of Vukovar can enjoy all the benefits that the public bicycle system brings them”Dvorski concluded.
highlights New Delhi: Prithvi Shaw had made a magnificent debut in Test cricket by smashing a hundred against West Indies in Rajkot. The Mumbai youngster was selected in the squad for the four-Test series in Australia. Shaw played the warm-up game against Cricket Australia XI and scored a solid fifty. However, while taking a catch near the boundary, Shaw landed awkwardly and suffered an ankle injury. He was carried off the field and was subsequently ruled out for the entire series. Following his recovery, Shaw played the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy but reports started floating around that he was sent back from the Australia tour due to indiscipline. In an open media interaction conducted by the Delhi Capitals franchise before the IPL, Shaw blasted those rumours and did not get into details about rehabilitation.“These are rumours, so I will better let it go. No one told me anything about not working hard. I wanted to play but got injured. I thought I could play the third Test (in Melbourne) but then progress of recovery was slow. If you have had a look at my ankle, you would have known that it was really painful. Ankle wasn’t healing quickly and I had to return,” Shaw curtly replied.

Recently, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) has been in the news for the way how player injuries has been mismanaged. Wriddhiman Saha’s shoulder injury was one such instance and it became so problematic that the Indian keeper has had to undergo surgery and get into intensive rehabilitation. However, Shaw thinks otherwise.“I mean everything was perfect over there (NCA). I did a lot of sessions there. I was working to get fit before Mushtaq Ali T20 as I wanted to get used to the T20 format and then go to the IPL. That’s how I had planned my two months of rehab. Trainers and physio were very committed,” Shaw said.The Mumbai player, who rose to prominence after smashing a record 546 in a Harris Shield game for Rizvi, has had a great start to his India career and he credited coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli for making him comfortable. “I have learnt a lot. I mean I was a bit nervous when I first entered that (Indian) dressing room with players having 10 years of experience sitting in front of me. When the skipper and coach said that there are no seniors or juniors, you then kind of open up and irritate them with your questions,” Shaw said.The youngster, who helped India win the Under-19 World Cup when they defeated Australia in the final at Mount Maunganui in New Zealand in 2018, also added that he could bat anywhere in the order as required and stressed on the mindset required. “When I open the innings in limited overs, my mindset is different. Two men outside 30-yard circle, powerplay overs but when I am going down the order, it will obviously change. I watch a lot of experienced players. I watch if I go at No 5, what will I do there. It’s all about mindset, how you approach that situation,” Shaw said.
