Bicikademija – a platform for the promotion of cycling tourism is expanding to the island of Rab

first_imgThe platform for the promotion of cycling tourism, Bicikademija, continues to expand to other regions and destinations. After Slavonia and Istria, the latest cycling studio is the Island of Rab.The cycling study consists of 7 exams – Paradise Beach, Sveti Nikola, Ciganka Beach, Stolac Lookout, Zlatni Zalaz, Rab City and Dundo Forest.The Bicikademija project is an innovative and interactive approach to the promotion of a certain area as a desirable cycling tourist destination. The bicycle academy consists of a web platform and a mobile application to which the user (Bike Student) registers, who receives a virtual index after this process. The index consists of studies that represent specific areas. Each Study consists of an exam (location). The Student’s task is to register and log in to the system, tour the locations by bicycle, check and take photos and thus take the exam.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”Rab Bike Academy was financed by the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Lopar, where they will find prizes for the winners who pass this Bike Academy Study.It is estimated that there are over 60 million active cyclists in Europe, generating over 50 billion euros in consumption. Also, cyclists in the destination spend about 30 percent more than “classic” tourists, most often traveling in pairs or in groups of several people and are logically mobile and do not stay long in one place.Bicikademija is a great innovative and interactive project that, together with partners, could be a great story. The first step has been made, now it is up to others to give support, both financial and logistical, to bring the project to life on the ground in full glory as a complete tourist story. Otherwise, tourist destinations are interested in it, they have almost a product, embrace it and tell stories.Find out more about the whole project herelast_img read more

Joseph’s struggles lead to 2nd-half benching by Boeheim in loss to Red Storm

first_imgKaleb Joseph has never played fewer minutes for Syracuse.He has also never missed so many 3-pointers or fueled so many opponent fast breaks. The freshman point guard played just 19 minutes in Syracuse’s (5-3) 69-57 loss to St. John’s (6-1) on Saturday night in the Carrier Dome. Just six of those came after halftime as Joseph had to sit between assistant coach Adrian Autry and head coach Jim Boeheim from the 13:35 mark in the second half until he subbed back in with four seconds left in the game.“Well, he’s got to learn that he’s a point guard, not a 3-point shooter,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “And he’s got to play defense.”With 11:53 left in the first half, Joseph bounced a high dribble in the middle of three St. John’s defenders. SJU guard D’Angelo Harrison stole the ball and laid it in at the other end to cut SU’s lead to 15-12.When Boeheim called timeout with 10:55 left in the half he pointed to the bench, then shouted “What are you doing?” at Joseph as he walked off the court. The head coach puffed his cheeks out in frustration before spending most of the ensuing timeout keeping his eyes locked on Joseph and subbing Ron Patterson into the game for the freshman.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe had missed a pair of 3s and turned the ball over once at that point. Joseph started the second half with a made 3 for his only points on a night would get only get worse for him.“Kaleb was 1-for-5 and I don’t want him shooting those,” Boeheim said.After the game Joseph didn’t specify what he and Boeheim talked about.Said Joseph: “We were just talking … nothing in particular.” Comments Published on December 6, 2014 at 10:56 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
