World Bicycle Day is celebrated every year on June 3. The day is observed to acknowledge the versatility of a cycle and its affordable role in keeping the environment clean and boosting human health and increasing your longevity. The World Bicycle Day aims at developing a culture of cycling for basic transportation, commutation, and strengthening physical and mental health. Here we tell you how exactly cycling helps in keeping you fit.
Acknowledging the uniqueness, longevity, and versatility of the bicycle, which has been in use for two centuries, and that it is a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation, fostering environmental stewardship and health, the General Assembly decided to declare 3 June World Bicycle Day.
It encouraged stakeholders to emphasize and advance the use of the bicycle as a means of fostering sustainable development, strengthening education, including physical education, for children and young people, promoting health, preventing disease, promoting tolerance, mutual understanding, and respect and facilitating social inclusion and a culture of peace.
The Assembly welcomed initiatives to organize bicycle rides at the national and local levels as a means of strengthening physical and mental health and well-being and developing a culture of cycling in society
In 2018 the United Nations declared June 3 as World Bicycle Day. World Bicycle Day is a chance for people around the globe to pay tribute to the bicycle and the many benefits it brings to society. Riding a bike can be a profession, a form of entertainment, a tool to freedom, an outlet of expression, or quite simply the best way of getting from A to B.
