In today’s increasingly digital world, using bicycle as transportation mode is one of the easiest ways to conserve the environment. It is not only cost effective but also helps in maintaining environmental sustainability. Several research studies have concluded that, bicycle is a sustainable and environment friendly transport. It not only saves natural resources (Petrol and Natural Gas) from extinguishing rapidly but also helps in maintaining the environment free from pollution and dust. Bicycles are mostly used by students, faculties, and corporate executives to commute to their schools, educational institutes, university campuses, and corporate offices. However, people also started using bicycles to maintain their health and deal with diseases like diabetes, stress, depression, and fatigue. Bicycles help in maintaining natural resources such as, air, water, soil, energy, and most importantly human lives.
Bicycles do not expel dangerous gases like buses, cars, or scooters which makes them a green mode of transportation. People can enjoy a cost free ride at their own convenience. Another advantage is the fact that bicycling does not incur in any major maintenance costs. Rather, bicycles work as a fitness equipment and helps people in reducing weight, removing fatigue, and maintaining general health. Bicycles unlike cars or scooters do not require parking lot facility specifically and with their creative and innovative space saving models they can be easily placed in a balcony or a spare gallery of home.
They save a lot of cost to maintain parking spaces or secured infrastructure required for personalised vehicles like cars or scooters. One of the most important features of the bicycle is that, it does not create any form of sound pollution. It just makes a small ring and gets the way. So, in general bicycles do not make sound, air, water, or soil pollution. Rather, they help people in maintaining their health and ensure environmental sustainability. It can be used from kids to adults without any restriction of age. It is cost effective and easy to maintain so why not ride a bicycle and help sustaining the environment.
