The role of rota is to advocate a cause. People have the right to travel in any way they deem fit, and it is for this reason that we work to ensure that they can do so safely, without any fear, and within the space entitled to them. Rota is doing its utmost to encourage more people to use the bicycle by raising awareness of its feasibility, health benefits and the fun it gives people who ride it.

We are increasingly also becoming a strong lobby group, liaising with the authorities and other NGOs to consider cycling as an alternative and sustainable mode of transport, and to design better and safer infrastructure which facilitates cycling. We truly believe that using a bicycle in Malta is one great way of keeping fit, reducing the carbon emissions, decreasing traffic congestion and arriving to one’s destination on time without any hassle of traffic jams and parking. All our members are testament to this as they have all integrated cycling in their own lives and their passion for cycling is slowly but surely rubbing off on others. As a community, we are keen to support others to take this journey with us, and through our diverse experiences and expertise we may indeed be able to help you get on that bicycle and start pedalling.
