Golden bicycle – a great gift for president!


How did the president of Turkmenistan receive a gold bicycle?

Let's find out!

To celebrate the closure of the Asian Martial Arts Games, the Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow presented valuable prizes to the winners and their coaches. In return, they presented him a golden two-wheeled masterpiece.

It is made of carbon and bamboo tree with a gold coating; the inscription "TURKMENISTAN" shines on the stylish bright green frame of the bicycle. Mr. Berdimuhamedow informed the sportsmen that he will display this valuable gift in the museum.


The president's love of gold is an open secret. In 2015, a 21-meter-high gilded monument to Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow was erected in the capital of Turkmenistan, Ashgabat.
