Half of Pakistan's Population Lacks Basic Skill of Cycling: Gallup Survey

According to a recent survey by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, just around half of Pakistan’s citizens are proficient bicycle riders. According to the survey’s results, which were published earlier this month, 45% of Pakistanis are unable to ride a bicycle.

Given that riding a bicycle is seen as a fundamental ability that most people learn at an early age, this is an unexpected discovery. While some could contend that this is a result of the nation’sc economic situation, others blame a lack of knowledge and instruction regarding the advantages of riding.

Cycling is a convenient, eco-friendly form of transportation that has a number of positive health effects. It is an activity that enhances cardiovascular health, lessens stress, and enhances general wellbeing. Also, it can be a sociable and enjoyable activity that unites localities.

A concentrated effort must be made to promote cycling as a sustainable and healthy means of transportation in order to overcome this problem. This can be accomplished by establishing safe and convenient bicycle infrastructure as well as by running educational and awareness efforts.

Cycling can also be made more approachable and appealing to a wider audience through programmes like community-led riding groups and bike-sharing schemes.

By promoting cycling, we can not only encourage healthier lifestyles but also lessen air pollution and traffic congestion. It’s time for Pakistan to acknowledge the value of cycling and take action to make sure that more people may acquire this fundamental skill.
