Hello everyone! wave

 

Happy Thursday! And with the weather being absolutely gorgeous today, it’s no wonder it’s World Bicycle Day. As one of the probably most important inventions in the history of our planet, bicycles give millions of people means of transport. And the best thing about it? It’s good for us too! Whilst taking the train or car is of course convenient, riding the bicycle is great way to get around and stay active.

 

Many take it even to the next level and engage in cycling sports. And whilst I am not one of those, I do join the millions of people cheering on the cyclists at the Tour de France or the mountain bikers who tackle even the most difficult terrains πŸš΄

That is why World Bicycle Day has been created by the United Nations to recognise the vital importance of the bicycle across the globe. Bringing attention to the benefits of cycling around the world and to get everyone thinking about all the good reasons this simple yet beneficial means of transportation should receive more acknowledgment and public attention, we can join in and maybe choose the bicycle over the bus or car more often from today.

 

Not a fan of cycling yourself or are you facing one or another hills on your journey? Priority currently offers you 20% off E-Bikes and Accessories from Mate Bike (ends Mon 14th Jun) wink

 

Do you like to cycle? If yes, do you cycle for fun, to stay active or to get around?

If I ever get a day off, I'll get mine out and ride off somewhere quiet with a book.

I have never heard of Zwift @madasaf1sh but it does look interesting. Do you need any special equipment for this? (except of course for you cycle shorts sweat_smile)

 

You quickly fall out of the routine @Cleoriff, especially when you are walking a lot like me. But I am keen on doing a lot more cycling during the summer smiling
