According to him, bicycles don’t use petrol and so it is a cheaper means of transportation.

He further argued that proponents have equally encouraged the use of bicycles to eradicate poverty, further sustainable development, strengthen education, including physical education, for children and young people, promote health, prevent disease, and facilitate social inclusion.

World Bicycle Day recognises “The uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle as a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transport, fostering environmental stewardship and health, hence the United Nations 2023 World Bicycle Day theme: ‘Riding Together for a Sustainable Future’,” he said.
