Though 3d June is WORLD Bicycle Day, some observe it today and hence I have posted here what I posted 2019 on this subject for the kind read and response of our esteemed viewers as a SECOND POST of the Day!.
Walking indeed is God’s gift for the humans- enjoyed till my early twenties
Sixty years ago- walked to college to and fro sixteen miles-pleasure it was!
Let us forget four annas for college bus was a luxury and chose to walk
That stands in good stead at age seventy nine! Cycling to office great days!
Later couple of cars and bikes and cycles for years at home for use to go
Anywhere and every where-near or far-indispensable they had become-lo!
Third June today World Bicycle day kindling thoughts
Of vehicles less and full- life!Great the benefits of bicycling!
People need to be encouraged to use bicycle to work.and all
Bicycling to work increases happiness helps brain function better.
Helps save all that money to be spent on petrol or bus fare.
Let us take cycle or jump on and enjoy a nice ride to work.
I recollect my early Coimbatore days fifty years ago
I used to bicycle to my office with tucked in full arm shirt and tie!
Benefits of Bicycling to Work are many physically, mentally and emotionally
Burns calories as jogging but less strains to joints. boosts our energy,
Lowers pressure, builds muscle, improves fitness!improves mental function.
Improves memory, learning and brain’s performance. makes better at work.
Saves money.convenient than car. getting stuck in traffic; finding parking spot;
Sudden mechanical problems gasoline or not. With bicycle,
If does not get punctured, no problems. pedal right
Allows fresh air, be closer with surrounds and see the world
Not stressful- safer- Car emissions pollute the environment.
Get into bicycle and pedal to work and then home again.
Healthier, happier, more productive at work and save money!
