Cycling to save the Baltic Sea
A group of cyclists have embarked on a 3,500 km race through nine Baltic Sea countries to push for greater environmental protection of the waterway.
They're part of the "Race for the Baltic" campaign led by the Swedish organisation Zennström Philanthropies, and almost 90 other environmental groups, universities and companies. They want governments around the Baltic to put a stop to huge discharges of agricultural chemicals and to designate 30 percent of the sea a protected area.
The cyclists have just completed the first 1,000 km leg of their trip around the Baltic Sea coast from Malmö to Stockholm.
Radio Sweden's reporter Tom Sullivan met them. Listen here:
