World Bicycle Day is celebrated on June 3rd every year. The day is celebrated to spread awareness about the health and environmental benefits of cycling.
Why this day is celebrated :-
* Increased bicycle use means lower greenhouse gas emissions: Cycling contributes to mitigation of carbon dioxide emissions as it possesses an intrinsic zero-emissions value. Cycling reduces air pollutants and reduces noise pollution and traffic congestion.
* Cycling can lead to a healthier life both in fitness and reduced stress.
* Cycling saves money: Bikes are less expensive to buy, are free to ride, and are less expensive to maintain than cars.
* Environmental awareness: To raise awareness about the local environment and sustainable consumption and production.
🌱🚲 I urge those who love to and can to #GoGreen
Happy World Bicycle Day!
It rained here today too, bummer, I didn't know it was bicycle day! But I did take my bike for the commute yesterday. In the summer I use it as much as possible, but I avoid rainy days. Maybe I need to get proper attire for rainy weather. My bike has fenders which is a big help in not getting dirty.
