World Bicycle Day 2021: Quotes That Will Inspire You Peddle Into an Environmentally Sustainable Future

Celebrated on June 3rd worldwide, World Bicycle day highlights the copious benefits of getting behind that wheel and peddling it around town. Cycling is not just a great form of exercise that boosts metabolism and strengthens muscles, but it is also a wonderful, environmentally sustainable way to travel. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “safe infrastructure for walking and cycling is also a pathway for achieving greater health equity.”  If the pandemic has proved one thing,  it is that public transport is more like a fair-whether friend, dependable only during the good times. However, the cycle is your stalwart friend good during a crisis; It is Environment friendly and always accessible. 

It not only avoids pesky traffic jams but considering the rocketing fuel prices, it also doesn’t make a huge dent in the wallet. On This World Bicycle Day, let’s all be inspired with these quotes and  peddle into an environmentally  sustainable future
