World Bicycle Day

World Bicycle Day

In 2018, the United Nations declared June 3rd 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 form of freedom, an outlet of expression or quite simply a cheap and easy mode of transport.

The great thing about World Bicycle Day is it celebrates all the good stuff, it is brilliant for your physical and mental health, great for the environment and economy and bikes are free to ride. So, from regular cyclists, to pro-cyclist or cyclist event watchers… we can all agree that the bike should be celebrated!
