Cycle to Work Day

August 6

Cycle to Work Day - August 6

Cycle to Work Day promotes cycling. This method of transportation is much more environmentally friendly than driving a car and allows you to unload the roads. Also, the day is intended to draw attention to the need to comply with the rules of the road on the part of cyclists, motorists and pedestrians.

History

Cycle to Work Day appeared in 1956. The proliferation of bicycles was driven by a post-war shortage of fuel, which was no longer widely available. Little thought was given to the environment at that time.

Currently, people are interested in alternative means of transportation primarily as a way to reduce the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The need for a careful attitude to the surrounding world becomes more obvious every year.

Interesting facts

  • A bicycle costs the owner much less than a car. This applies to the cost of the vehicle itself, repairs, spare parts. In addition, the bike does not need fuel.
  • Cycling is good for the heart and prevents the development of cardiovascular diseases.
  • Cyclists use a special sign language to communicate on the roads – learn it, even if you don’t have a bike, so as not to get into an accident.
  • The first prototype of a bicycle was presented to the public at the end of the 18th century.

How to celebrate

If you’ve never ridden a bike to work before, this is a great place to start. You may be so inspired that you even decide to buy a bike. Be sure to read the information on how to choose the right model, find out about the rules of cycling in the city and the location of bike lanes.

Going somewhere on the “iron horse”, for safety reasons, wear a helmet and clothing with reflective elements. Such measures save the lives of many cyclists and pedestrians every year.
