It’s time to ride 🚲

“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when Hope hardly seems to worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

World Bicycle day is celebrated on June 3

Health experts across the world are encouraging people to use bicycles.

The idea is for the people to recognise the versatility & uniqueness of the bicycle as a mode of transport. 

In 1817, Baron Karl von Drais of Germany invented the bicycle.

Cycling as an activity

  • Keeps body strong
  • Reduced risk of heart diseases and diabetes
  • Keeps stress levels lower
  • It’s fun to ride
  • Good for weight loss
  • Improves lung strength (Especially in these Corona Days)
  • Boosts mental health
  • Cycling is a zero pollution mode of transportation

According to UN

“For the poorest urban sector, who often cannot afford private vehicles, walking and cycling can provide a form of transport while reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, diabetes, and even death. Accordingly, improved active transport is not only healthy; it is also equitable and cost-effective,” 

Take home message

✔A bad day on a mountain bike always beats a good day in the office

✔Save the Planet. Ride a bike.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    What really impresses me is the number of people, chickens, and other assorted things that can be loaded on a bicycle as needed.
