World Bicycle Day Celebration. 

By GENALTIECE LTD. Posted June 03, 2021

John F. Kenedy once said “ Nothing compares to the pleasure of riding a bike”.

Indeed it is. The 3rd of June is World Bicycle Day. The day is commemorated to raise awareness about the value and benefits of riding a bicycle. Riding a bicycle is a well-known fact that is not only healthy for one's health but also for the environment because it is a zero-pollution means of transportation.

The United Nations General Assembly declared June 3 to be World Bicycle Day after it recognized the two-adaptability, wheeler's originality, and longevity. Bicycles are also a cost-effective, dependable, clean, and ecologically friendly mode of transportation, according to the United Nations.

The United Nations is encouraging stakeholders to recognize and emphasize the benefits of cycling on this special day. Cycling, in reality, ensures a person's physical well-being. It is more long-lasting and can aid in efforts to achieve long-term development. Furthermore, the cycle has been in use for over two centuries and is appreciated by both adults and children. Cycling also fosters inclusivity because it is not particularly expensive and can be enjoyed by both the rich and the poor.

In normal conditions, we would have hosted a number of bicycle-related events, such as a slow cycling competition, a cycle race, and so on. However, much could not be done due to the current coronavirus scenario.
To take part in this year's World Bicycle Day commemoration, the event was held at the Ministry of Transportation's conference room from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m and at the African Global Radio from 2pm to 2:30 pm.

The Ministry of Transport, Ghana Bamboo Bicycle, Envirotech Bamboo Ltd, and the media collaborated on this project.

The event emphasized the planned bikeshare project in Ghanaian universities and communities to throw light on the importance of riding in achieving a low-emission trajectory in Ghana. 

The purpose is to encourage low-carbon mobility that is both sustainable and adheres to Ghana's sustainable transportation strategy through the development of the non-motorized transport subsector.
