World Bicycle Day

World Bicycle Day is celebrated on June 3 every year. World Bicycle Day draws attention to the benefits of using the bicycle — a simple, affordable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation.
Professor Leszek Sibilski, Polish social scientist working in the United States, led a grassroots campaign with his sociology class to promote a UN Resolution for World Bicycle Day, eventually gaining the support of Turkmenistan and 56 other countries.
The bicycle contributes to cleaner air and less congestion and makes education, health care and other social services more accessible to the most vulnerable populations.
The UN Sustainable Transport Conference will take place from 14 to 16 October 2021 in Beijing, China and will focus on the central role that sustainable transport plays in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The Forum will also highlight opportunities, challenges and solutions in achieving a sustainable transport system worldwide.
