UNITED NATIONS MARKS WORLD BICYCLE DAY ROLLS AROUND

It is a day to join millions of people around the world who use a bicycle as their primary means of transportation to celebrate one of history’s best inventions.

The UN General Assembly declared June 3 World Bicycle Day to recognize its benefits, as well as bring attention to road safety for cyclists and pedestrians while encouraging the use of bicycles in cross-cutting development.

The United Nations says a bicycle has “uniqueness, longevity and versatility”, and is a “simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation”, good for the environment and health.
