About World Bicycle Day 2021 theme

“Uniqueness, versatility, and longevity of the bicycle as a simple, sustainable, economical, and reliable mode of transportation” is the theme of World Bicycle Day.

Regular physical activity of moderate intensity – such as walking, cycling, or doing sports – has significant benefits for health. At all ages, the benefits of being physically active outweigh potential harm, for example through accidents. Some physical activity is better than none. By becoming more active throughout the day in relatively simple ways, people can quite easily achieve the recommended activity levels.

About World Bicycle Day history

The United Nations General Assembly declared June 3 every year as World Bicycle Day in April 2018. Leszek Sibilski’s crusade and the support of Turkmenistan and 56 other countries to recognise World Bicycle Day resulted in the creation of the Day. Numerous activities are held across the world on this day, including at UCI’s own World Cycling Centre (WCC) in Aigle.
