World Bicycle Day 2023 History, Message, Wish, Quotes, and Status

Today, ‘World Bicycle Day’ is being celebrated all over the world. No one knew before 2018 that such a day could even be celebrated. Keeping in mind the environment, in 2018 the United Nations General Assembly decided that June 3 will be celebrated as ‘World Bicycle Day’.

Both the environment and your health will be better if you choose a bicycle instead of a two-wheeled motorcycle or a four-wheeled vehicle. In the rush of a busy lifestyle, most people do not feel like regular exercise. Even if you have the habit of going to morning work, you miss one-half day. Instead, if you cycle at any time of the day, there are multiple benefits.

History of World Bicycle Day

The world’s first bicycle was built 203 years ago today, by German craftsman Baron Karl von Drais in 1817. This bicycle was named “Dandy Horse”. Which is translated into Bengali as “beautiful horse”. It was made of wood and had no paddles. It was also given two names Draisienne or Laufmaschine.

Polish professor Leszek Sibilski appealed to the United Nations (UN) with the people of the Polish community to celebrate this “Bicycle Day”. Turkmenistan and other 56 countries supported it. Finally, the United Nations General Assembly announced in April 2018 that June 3 will be celebrated as World Bicycle Day around the world. Starting from 2018, World Bicycle Day is celebrated on June 3 every year.
