Daniel Zeichner, Cambridge City’s MP will be riding one of its electric bikes throughout the day on Car Free and Zero Emissions Day, Friday 21st September. He will be collecting the e-bike on Cambridge Science Park. The latter is the first business park to have piloted Cambridge Electric Transport’s e-bike scheme encouraging over 35 companies to try the bikes.
In a bid to show Cambridge residents that using more sustainable forms of transport is the way to keep healthy, save money and reduce pollution and traffic levels in the city, Daniel Zeichner and his Chief of Staff will be riding Cambridge Electric Transport’s e-bikes throughout the day. Friday 21st September is the international Car Free and Zero Emissions Day and all over the world people will be dropping the keys to go green. Car Free Day is organised in various cities throughout the world in different ways, but with the common goal of reducing the number of cars on the streets. The benefit to greater society is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced gasoline demand. Today, Car Free Day includes celebrations in 46 countries and over 2,000 cities.
Speaking about using the electric bike, Daniel Zeichner, MP said “Making sure that we maintain the state of this planet for future generations couldn’t be more important, which is why I am showing my support for Zero Emissions and World Car Free Day by cycling all day.”
“We all know that congestion, poor air quality and climate change is causing real problems for us and this planet but if we want to do something about it then we need to start putting the brakes on CO² emissions. One way to do that is to choose a greener and more sustainable journey.”
“It will be interesting to make my usual Friday constituency appointments by e-bike but it is for a great cause! I’d like to thank Cambridge Electric Transport for providing the bike and for what they are doing to make it easier for people to travel to work by bicycle. Cambridge has a great cycling community and I have no doubt that plenty of residents will also be showing their support this weekend by taking to their bike.”
