World Bicycle Day is an annual observance that aims to raise awareness of the benefits of cycling and promote cycling as a healthy and sustainable mode of transportation. This observance also aims to highlight the importance of better infrastructure for bike riders and safer streets for all road users.
The idea of World Bicycle Day was initially proposed by UN General Assembly in 2018 to recognize the unique role that bicycles play in fostering sustainable development, strengthening education, improving health, and reducing carbon emissions. For the people of the United Kingdom, cycling is an increasingly popular way to save time, money, and stay physically active while mitigating the impact of climate change. According to a recent survey, around 59% of UK adults own a bike and 83% agree that cycling is a good form of exercise.
In the United Kingdom, World Bicycle Day is observed in various ways. Many cycling organizations and enthusiasts organize group rides, events, and competitions to promote cycling infrastructure, education, and safety measures. Some schools also take part in cycling-themed activities on this day to encourage children to take up cycling as a sustainable mode of transport. World Bike Day is observed on June 3rd each year.
