UN World Bicycle Day - 3 June, SDGs 3, 11, and 13

Happy World Bicycle Day!

On this day the UN says the following about

Cycling and Sustainable Development

“World Bicycle Day draws attention to the benefits of using the bicycle — a simple, affordable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation. The bicycle contributes to cleaner air and less congestion and makes education, health care and other social services more accessible to the most vulnerable populations. A sustainable transport system that promotes economic growth, reduces inequalities while bolstering the fight against climate change is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.”    ~United Nations.”

In addition to the UN’s statement on the benefits of the bicycle here are some careers directly related to it: Bike Shop Salesperson or Supervisor, Bicycle Fabricator, Law Enforcement Bicycle Patrol Officer, Content Creator, Bicycle Tours and Taxis, and Bicycle Technician. Also, Bike Rental Services such as Ecobici in Mexico hire people for a variety of positions. O*NET Online

As a side note: Cycling is my favorite form of physical activity. I feel free while cycling. I was introduced to cycling as a means of helping the environment by my high school counselor. Several of my classmates and I formed an Ecology Club focused on bike riding and cleaning up the cigarette butts from the sidewalks and beaches. I used to ride with my friends while sometimes singing Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two). On the topic of bicycle songs, there are at least 91 known globally. Here are my two favorite ones:

Bicycle by RM of BTS #BicycleRM: Bicycle by RM

Bicycle Race by Queen #BicycleRaceQueen: Bicycle Race by Queen
