It’s time to tune up those bikes and get ready for riding as Islamabad Earth Day Bike Ride is just around the corner.
Bike Ride will be held on Earth Day which is celebrated on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
Environmental benefits of walking and cycling
When you choose to walk or cycle instead of driving, you help to reduce pollution in the environment.
Active transportation, such as walking, cycling, in-line skating or skateboarding, is a great way to reduce greenhouse gases. These gasses harm our environment as they contribute to climate change.
Cycling to work will save you money on gas, reduce wear and tear on your car, avoid frustration and wasted time from sitting in traffic, and it will make you a whole lot healthier.
The only negative impact of biking on the environment is that avid cyclists tend to be healthier. So they may live longer than others, thus consuming more energy over the course of their longer lifetimes than if they had not taken up the activity and died earlier.
It doesn’t take much to become a bike commuter. All you need is a bike, a little planning, and a little advice from those who bike to work regularly.
So if you care about the environment and more than anything, about your own health, then join the Earth Day Bike ride and show your support for the Environment.
