In recognition of the longevity and versatility of the bicycle, which has been in use for more than two centuries, the UN General Assembly decided to declare June 3 as World Bicycle Day.
Encouraging this type of transportation can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, certain types of cancer, diabetes, and even death. So improving the conditions of this type of transport brings benefits for health, equity and the economy.
As we can see, more and more bicycle lanes are being implemented, giving more facilities for movement through this transport, the use of which has increased in recent years, and which benefits both own health and that of the planet. It is necessary to be aware of the vulnerability of cyclists on the road, as well as cyclists must make good use of bicycle lanes, whenever they exist. We already see several people who ride a family bike with masks to protect themselves from the Covid-19, which we recommend.
Toldos Guardamar wants to encourage more and more people to take the bicycle instead of their motor vehicle, whenever they can. Because in this way … we improve the quality of the air we all breathe.
