Cycle Day Reaches Vijayanagar Now!

On Sunday (April 26, 2015), the residents of Vijayanagar woke up to ‘Cycle Day’ dawning onto the streets of their neighborhood. The first ever Cycle Day at Vijayanagar was marked a huge success with the participation of 250+ enthusiasts not only from the locality, but also from all across Bangalore, irrespective of their age. The event was anchored by the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), initiated by Bangalore Coalition for Open Spaces (BCOS), with the co-operation of the local partner CARE ALL foundation  and local sponsor LALITHA ENTERPRISES. Also, MLA M Krishnappa and Rajya Sabha member Prof. Rajeev Gouda showed their presence in the event. In addition to cycle rides, there was an overwhelming response to the Yoga performance by experts from Prashanth Yoga Center. All the participants cycled and marched along the streets of Vijayanagar and Humpi nagar, thriving for motor free roads on Sundays.

About Bangalore Cycle Day

Welcome to the official Facebook page for Bengaluru's "Cycle Day" campaign. Cycle Day is anchored by the Bangalore Coalition for Open Streets (BCOS) - a non-profit collective comprising of the Directorate of Urban Land Transport, Praja RAAG, EMBARQ India, ESAF and individual citizens. Our mission is to transform Bangalore through cycling and open streets, creating active communities, connected citizens and happy neighbourhoods. More and more people are beginning to adopt cycling as a healthy, green, economical and fun alternative to driving. In a city like Bengaluru, a cycle sometimes offers a faster commute than motorized transport! There are few better ways to get to know this city than by cycling through its landscape, drinking in its myriad sights and sounds. The year-round brilliant weather makes the experience that much sweeter. On the last Sunday of every month, get outdoors, enjoy the fresh air, scenery, and the sense of freedom and abandon that cycling is all about! Even if you haven't cycled in years, rediscover the joy of cycling this Cycle Day.
