Liisa Reinola: University students – an easily forgotten group of usersPublished:
Children and young people’s physical exercise is often discussed, and equal opportunities for them to be active: how certain sports are expensive, but how physical exercise is important for personal development, social relationships and even health. Once this case is somehow fixed, the discussion jumps ahead many decades and focuses on exercise opportunities for the elderly. It is a well-known fact that physical exercise does play a key role in supporting their health and ability to function. So, the opportunity for safe gym training, jogging paths close to home, and guided sports groups for seniors by the city sports services must be provided.
Jussi Ansala: Municipal elections and cycling – the holy trinity for commuters and students: bicycle, route and a wholly reliable lockPublished:
In June, the Board OLL, the Finnish Student Sports Federation, decided on the federation's goals for the 2021 municipal elections. The decisions are based on statements by member organisations.

In this blog post, I will address the municipal election theme mainly on the basis of my personal experiences in the saddle.
