World Bicycle Day on 3 June 2023 draws attention to the benefits of using the bicycle — a simple, affordable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation.

As demonstrated through intitiatives such as #BikesForUkraine, the bicycle can enable access to health care, education and other social services for the most vulnerable populations, as well as contributing to cleaner air and less congestion. A sustainable transport system that promotes economic growth, reduces inequalities while bolstering the fight against climate change is critical to achieving the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.

Acknowledging the uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle, which has been in use for two centuries, and that it is a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation, fostering environmental stewardship and health, the General Assembly decided to declare 3 June World Bicycle Day.

There is no registration for this event. For more information, see here.
