World Bicycle Day is being observed on Monday (June 3).
The purpose to observe the day is to promote the versatility of the bicycles and initiating a healthy lifestyle among the citizens of the world.
The United Nations General Assembly recognises the importance of bicycles as a sustainable and healthy way to commute. It is one way which can help cities and their people to thrive in a sustainable manner. But apart from being environment-friendly, cycling is also a great cardiovascular exercise that can aid weight loss and improve heart health.
Studies suggest that cycling triggers a release in adrenaline and endorphins in your body. This, provides enjoyment and simultaneously helps boost your confidence and happiness. It also gives you time to process your thoughts, and come out of every ride, with a load off, both mentally and physically.
