World Bicycle Day United Nations proclaimed June 3rd
Whether you’re a pro-cyclist, a regular on-the-job rider, school or shops, or just having a social pedal on the weekend, we can all agree that the bike should be celebrated!
Riding a bike without training wheels is the first demanding physical activity we’ve ever learned to practice. We all know that, don’t we? The start of playing. The safe hand attached to the seat of the bicycle is removed.
World Bicycle Day was also a major online success with the hashtag, the # WorldBicycleDay, the phenomenon on Twitter asking people to share their personal and most enjoyable moments of cycling. Aid came from all over the world and pictures were shared.
