The bikers are members of the Shahrbanoo Sports and Cultural Complex, a venue of District 21 of Tehran Municipality.

The project, part of a national campaign dubbed “It Starts with Us”, is primarily aimed to enhance the culture of cycling, respect for traffic laws, car pool, cleaner air, as well as pedestrian rights.

The campaign, organized by the Tehran Municipality’s department of transportation in cooperation with street theater performers, was launched back in February.
