This idea is connected with Bicycle to Work Day, an annual event initiated by the Federation of American Cyclists in 1956. In different countries, it is observed on bicycles. Months vary, but the winter version aims to convince people that cycling is fine even in this part of the year. Participating in an event has only positive consequences - people who use bicycles instead of cars or other means of transport are healthier, happier and care for our planet.
Winter Bike to Work Day (as well as Winter Cycle Day) is usually held on the second Friday in February. The official website of the event encourages people to register and provides a leaderboard showing cities around the world such as Canada, USA, Russia, Croatia, Germany, Poland and many more. The fact that people can use bicycles to commute to work or school even in bad weather has the authorities in these countries wondering how to make it more convenient for cyclists. Due to the growing interest in winter cycling, special winter bicycle tires are now offered by various stores. Furthermore, the United Nations General Assembly expressed support for cycling and declared June 3 to be World Cycling Day. This shows how popular winter cycling is these days.
