Ever since the first vehicle rolled onto the streets in 1886, the world has had a love-hate relationship with the motor car. Today, with over one billion motor vehicles on the roads around the globe, it sometimes seems as if we cannot escape the pollution, noise and danger that they produce.
People have protested against the use of cars for decades for several reasons. Apart from the noise and the pollution, they are responsible for a rise in accidental deaths. They are also linked to heart disease and obesity.
In response to these issues,every year on or around 22 September, cities across the globe celebrate World Car-Free Day, encouraging motorists to give up their cars for a day. The event highlights the numerous benefits of going car-free to citizens—including reduced air pollution and the promotion of walking and cycling in a safer environment.
So why not mark World Car Free Day with a ebike ride? If you’ve not taught your little one how to ride a ebike yet, now is the perfect time to go out and buy one together. After all, this is something every child should learn to do, right? It is not hard to see why a ebike has established itself as something which is almost a necessity between all children. It is obviously something that provides endless amounts of fun for children as there is always a new adventure to be had and a new journey to take. It is also a toy which is sociable because children can play with their ebikes together and so it promotes your child getting out and having fun with others. Not only this, but it is something which can be enjoyed and carried on during teen years and adult life. Therefore,in a way it is something which is not viewed as childlike and this tends to be something children like. So, why not use World Car Free Day in order to embrace the beautiful ebike and go out on a ebike ride as a family?
