This Sunday, the residents of Sanjay Nagar took ‘Cycle Day’ to new levels. To reform their locality and to revive Bangalore to its old forms in terms of cycling, were the only things ringing in the heads of the residents. While local partners majorly focused on encouraging everyone to use cycles for short distance commutes, they also provided the participants with eco-friendly carry bags on rental basis. Sanjay Nagar took pride in being the first neighborhood to introduce this concept on Cycle Days.
The event set off with warm up sessions and the cycle ride was flagged off by the head of traffic police. Local partners were quite successful in maintaining the cycle track convenient and traffic free. Four laps along the track and games like chess, tug of war, frisbee, etc were organized. Dance performances by local groups were a major highlight in the event.
As organizers, the presence of some eminent officials from DULT made the event more colorful. The traffic police did their part of managing the traffic on Bhoopsandra main road. The event created a twist in the mindsets of people to think about the usage of sustainable transport and directed the local crowd towards a plastic-free Bangalore and a better world for the future generations as well.
