The annual General Assembly for the World Bicycle Industry Association (WBIA) which took place virtually on 30 September, has announced the re-election of its current president Erhard Büchel. The General Assembly also discussed the impact of the coronavirus crisis on sales and production at global levels as well as the WBIA work at the United Nations in Geneva. 

Interestingly, even-though initially the industry was affected by the pandemic several initiatives were introduced which has now led to the promotion of cycling and walking as effective and greener means of transport. Apparently, online sales have also increased significantly due to lockdown measures.

I believe cycling is beginning to become the new normal when it comes to means of transport in this era of corona virus. Together let’s adopt cycling as the new greener means of transport.
