Today, June 3, is the second annual World Bicycle Day. More than 800 million people around the globe will ride a bike this year. We know that many millions — including just about everyone who supports PeopleForBikes — will take an extra moment today to celebrate and share the joys and benefits of bicycling.
Bicycling is a healthy, sustainable and fun activity that provides affordable transportation, beneficial recreation and crucial access to food, education, work, health care, and other essential services. The bicycle has served the global community for more than 200 years. Today, the bicycle is more important than ever.
Mindful of these many assets, the United Nations last year designated June 3rd as the annual World Bicycle Day. We’re excited about year two and we’re looking forward to reading and viewing a wide range of new World Bicycle Day stories.
Please join us and people around the world in promoting and celebrating World Bicycle Day. Share your celebration and learn what others are doing by using #worldbicycleday #Joy2Bike on social media.
