Road transportation, such as cars, motorcycles, and buses, accounts for 9.5% of global greenhouse gases emissions. Biking is a fun, clean, and healthy mode of transportation that helps you burn some calories instead of fossil fuels!
Bikes are also affordable and health-promoting, making them one of the best and most inclusive means of transportation to help communities address global emissions, and several other UN Sustainable Development Goals.
So, get your tires ready to ‘Bike for Climate’ and have a week full of activities that we hope will inspire you to cycle more!
