Bike-riding is not only for kids but all should practise as well. That's why the FRSC encourages that you ride a bicycle as an alternative mode of transportation!

Do you have a bicycle? If no, you should consider getting one as the Federal Road Safety Corps has advised Nigerians to do some bicycle riding as an alternative mode of transportation.

This call was made by the Public Enlightenment Officer of the FRSC in Enugu State, Mr. Lucky Ebikefe, on Monday, June 5, 2019 in commemoration of the United Nations World Bicycle Day.

Ebikefe made this known at a rally organized in a collaborative effort with the Enugu Cycling club. According to him, bicycle riding offers enormous health benefits, creating a longer life span and enhancing mental health. It also helps in easing traffic by reducing the number of vehicles driving on the road. Ebikefe said:

“Bicycle, which has been in use for two centuries, is a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transport,”

Participants of the rally went a number of kilometers riding bicycles across the state.
