You do know!
If you are one of those who travel around Barcelona by bicycle, you are one of those who know that the health benefits of the physical activity you perform when you go on a bike in the city are much greater than the risks of air pollution and traffic accidents. We do not say it; the researchers of the CREAL (Centro de Investigación en Epidemiología Ambiental) say http://www.isglobal.org/ca/research/creal
What we do bear in mind is that the bicycle is one of the cheapest and faster means of transportation than the car (if the time from door to door is calculated), a source of health and, very importantly, it helps to improve the environment quality of the cities, reducing atmospheric and acoustic pollution. It is what we know as sustainable mobility because it minimizes the negative effects on the environment and on the quality of life of people. The bicycle is one of the main actors in relation to the fight against climate change. About this, we spoke last May at the 6th Bicycle Congress in Reus, where VadebikeBcn was present with its own stand and in several conferences that allowed us to present an easy, safe and intelligent parking model.
The Bicycle Congress is Catalonia's main forum for the exchange of information and the exchange of experiences related to the world of bicycles between public administrations, professionals in the sector, entities and users. The Councillor for Territorial and Sustainability, Josep Rull announced in the Closing of the Congress a line of support to local entities that will generate an investment of about € 40M, stating that "Sustainable economy: mobility combined with sustainability is very profitable ". VadebikeBcn wants to work together to reduce the pollution of the city, which improves the quality of the air so that we can breathe better on both wheels. If we go by bike, and park it safely and sustainably, we will all be winning.
Go, get on the bike, and enjoy it!
