The United Nations has declared June 3rd as International World Bicycle Day. This was decided last week during the 72nd Regular Session of the UN General Assembly in New York City.
The resolution was adopted by a consensus of 193 member states. The declaration invites all Member States and relevant stakeholders to celebrate and promote awareness of the bicycle.
The resolution acknowledges the “uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle, which has been in use for two centuries, and that it is a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation, fostering environmental stewardship and health.”
