Ride bicycle to keep fit, FRSC advises Nigerians 

The sector commander, Kogi Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Samuel Oyedeji, has called on Nigerians to develop the habit of  engaging in cycling in order to deal  with minor ailments and keep a healthy life.

Oyedeji stated this Monday while speaking during the celebration of the World Bicycle Day in Lokoja, Kogi state.

The sector commander, who led a team of officers and men of the corps and members of the cycling association to a ride on some streets of Lokoja metropolis, described the theme of the event “Promoting health, equity and sustainability through cycling” as apt.

He noted that cyclists were one of the unprotected road users that must be paid attention while on the road, adding that for centuries, bicycle has been a simple, affordable, reliable, clean, environmentally fit and sustainable means of transportation, fostering environmental stewardship and health.

“What some people don’t know is that through bicycle usage, many health challenges could be avoided. Today, we the staff members of FRSC, Kogi sector command and the cyclist association in the state are riding round the town.”
