World Bicycle Day

Every year on 3 June, World Bicycle Day is observed with an aim to make people more active through simple activities, including cycling. The World Health Organization (WHO) also emphasizes that cycling proves to be an effective way to achieve recommended activity levels.

The day was first marked on 3 June, 2018, when the United Nations first adopted a resolution during the 72nd Regular Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York City in April. More than 193 member states adopted the declaration which encouraged them to inculcate bicycles in regional, international, and sub-national development policies as well as programmes.

The UNGA also acknowledged the versatility and longevity of the bicycle which has served as a sustainable means of transportation for two centuries. The day is also marked for strengthening education, preventing diseases, including physical exercise, promoting tolerance, and facilitating social inclusion through cycling.
