“Childhood books on bicycle” cycling tour kicks off today, to cross 13 counties
Prince Nicholas starts today, April 23 the cycling tour “Childhood books on bicycle,” initiated by Curtea Veche Association. He is expected to pedal over one thousand kilometers together with national cycling champion Alex Ciocan, within the charitable cycling tour devoted to promote reading nationwide. The tour will last until May 3 and will cross 13 counties, including cities like Sighetu Marma?iei, Dej, Cluj Napoca, Alba Iulia, Sibiu, Bra?ov, Sinaia, Bucure?ti, C?l?ra?i and Constan?a.
All those who want to join the tour are invited to auction for the available seats in the squad or to attend for free the welcoming events set up in the above-mentioned cities.
“Those we are not practicing cycling but however want to involve can access the cyclers’ fundraising profiles created at www.asociatiacurteaveche.ro/pebicicleta, and thus can make an online donation. Each donated sum helps children from the countryside integrate in the national reading program “Childhood books” through which Curtea Veche Association makes book donations and sets up lecture clubs in the disadvantaged communities,” reads a Curtea Veche press release.
King Mihai I grandson, Prince Nicholas was born on April 1, 1985 in Geneva to Princess Elena and Robin Leslie Medforth-Mills, a United Nations official. On his 25th birth anniversary in 2010, King Mihai bestowed on him the title of Romania’s Prince and Royal Highness, at a ceremony hosted by Elisabeta Palace in Bucharest. Under the Fundamental Rules of the Royal Family, Prince Nicholas became in 2007 third in line to the defunct throne of Romania.
