WORLD BICYCLE DAY
World Bicycle Day is celebrated on 3rd June, globally. The idea behind World Bicycle Day is to recognize the versatility and uniqueness of the bicycle, as well as its reliability and sustainability as a mode of transportation.
Word Bicycle Day draws attention to the benefits of using the bicycle. It’s a simple, affordable, clean and environmentally friendly way of transportation. The bicycle contributes to cleaner air and less congestion. Moreover, it makes education, health care and other social services more accessible to the most vulnerable populations. A sustainable transport system that promotes economic growth, reduces inequalities while bolstering the fight against climate change is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Meeting the needs of people who walk and cycle continues to be a critical part of the mobility solution for helping cities de-couple population growth from increased emissions, and to improve air quality and road safety. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has led many cities to rethink their transport systems.
Moreover, the Bicycle Day is important in the field of engineering. Cities should be designed in such a way that everyone has the possibility to reach any place in the city safely and easily by bicycle. In order to do so, cycle paths should be developed.
