The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has launched a new campaign to raise public awareness of air pollution and to encourage people to take an interest in riding bicycles. Under this campaign, a bike parade travelled from Nongbon Water Sports Center through Chalerm Prakiat Rama 9 Road to Si Udom Intersection before returning to the starting point, totaling a distance of 12 kilometers.
Bangkok Deputy Governor Jumpol Sumpaopol said that apart from minimizing carbon dioxide emission and alleviating global warming, cycling can also bring down energy consumption and transportation costs while improving people’s health. He therefore invited everyone to incorporate cycling into their daily life due to its many benefits.
