OUR URBAN SPORTS BRAND
Sustainable urban mobility is very important nowadays. Moving in the city using sustainable transports keeps you healthy, reduces traffic and helps the planet.
The trend for sustainable urban mobility began in Nordic and Central European countries. Since late 80’s more and more people are becoming aware on ecological ways of transport. People are using bikes, scooters, skateboards, and other ways of transport to commute. These ways of transport saves money and also lowers cities pollution.
In some cities like Barcelona policies to improve sustainable urban mobility have been established. The Urban Mobility Plan of Barcelona was launched in 2013 with the objective of reducing motored transportation and promote sustainable transportation. Thanks to these new policies traveling by bike, skate, scooter and rollers has become very safe and practical.
Our way of life tends to a more sedentary lifestyle, we also have less free time due to work and responsibilities. Therefore, we tend to practice less sports lowering our physical activity. Sustainable urban mobility promotes low intensity physical activity while commuting. This has many benefits for your health.
This is why at Decathlon we encourage everyone to practice sustainable urban mobility, among all the health benefits, there are many ecological benefits. The carbon footprint in our planet can be reduced and your fitness status can be increased. It is a win-win situation for everyone. When commuting inside the city for short or medium distances try to use bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc, instead of motorized vehicles.
