World Bicycle Day

World Bicycle Day

In 2018 the United Nations declared 3 June as World Bicycle Day to give the two-wheeled-wonder greater recognition.

The UN want the world to celebrate the uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle and promote it as a simple, affordable, reliable, clean, sustainable and fun means of transportation. Learn more about the history of the bike.

We did just this at our World Bicycle Day community event at Hawthorn Velodrome. It was a great day out and saw all types of bike riders – from local BUGs to Brompton riders and MAMILs to mountain bike riders – join the fun.
