Their aim was to promote cycling for all generations. The mayor presented the ambassadors, who are all women, with bouquets as well as portable bicycle stands.

Ambassadors Anita Hugau (Denmark), Daphne Bergsma (Holland) and Trine Skymoen (Norway) wanted to underline the importance of healthy, non-motorised transport in European cities. They also wanted to show their support for Bratislava's plans to build new bike paths. The ambassadors arrived as a trio because they share the same agenda in terms of bicycle transport, open civic society and combating domestic violence committed against women and children.
