|Professor Leszek Sibilski, social scientist, campaigned with his sociology class to promote a UN Resolution for World Bicycle Day.
In April 2018, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 3 as World Bicycle Day to promote how cool bikes are.🚴🚴♀️🚴♂️
|Bicycles were invented in the 1800s and after a few awkward designs quickly became popular.
The fact that bicycles are easy to use, require no fuel and are a lot more compact than most transport vehicles is what makes bicycles still go almost 2 centuries later!
|Bicycles played an important part in Western female emancipation. Because to ride a bicycle, a big dress is not very practical.
Special bicycle suits were designed for women which included a pair of trousers.
This made some women realize that they really loved the comfort and freedom of wearing trousers.
|Any time you think that it’s too much effort to ride a bicycle, remember that the bicycle was invented and developed by people who thought that walking was too much effort.
Laziness can lead to great inventions!
|Do we need to say that riding the bicycle to work or school leads to regular healthy exercise?|
|“Life is like riding a bicycle – in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
