Almost 500 people teamed up in the city of Terrassa, Spain, to participate in a big cycling circuit. They created a bicycle figure in the process and did so to advocate for bikes as a clean mode of transport.
Walking and cycling are the cleanest and most efficient forms of transport, particularly suited for short to moderate distances. Both provide numerous benefits. They improve health, do not produce air or noise pollution and help to reduce congestion.
Introducing cycling infrastructure (e.g. bike lanes, bike parking and hire schemes) are ways in which cities can promote cycling, while creating pedestrian-friendly spaces can promote commuting, shopping and recreation.
