After a 1000-kilometer-plus cycling tour across Estonia, the NATO Velo team will arrive in Narva, their final destination, on Friday.

Close to 30 Estonian, British and Danish soldiers and officers started the tour in Tartu last Saturday. Their first leg took them to Pärnu, and then on to the islands of Saaremaa and Hiiuma, before crossing back to the mainland. On Wednesday, the team arrived in Vabaduse väljak in Tallinn.

On Friday, the NATO Velo team will arrive in the eastern border town of Narva around 5 p.m., finishing their journey at Peetri plats, where the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battlegroup in Tapa, will set up a "meet the soldiers" event from 3 p.m., where eFP personnel will be on hand to show their kit and various military vehicles, and inform guests about the battlegroup's role in Estonia. Those who are interested can also have their picture taken with a NATO soldier.
