HSR Welcomes Cycle Day for the 8th Time!

HSR Layout’s consistent energy and enthusiasm has always kept the locality brimming with activities on Cycle Days. In collaboration with HSR Cyclists, the layout welcomed Cycle Day for the 8th time with the support of DULT, BCOS, Bangalore Traffic Police and other associate partners. The tree-covered lanes of HSR Layout allowed a liberated 4 km loop ride after a short work out session. As always, group games like tug of war, wheel rolling and slow cycling race were much awaited by the kids.

The bonded spirit of the neighborhood came into light through group skipping challenges, which had couples and friends who challenged each other for the most consistent number of hops.
The 8th Cycle Day received the following responses:

“Cycle day is total entertainment and fun on weekends. The best thing about Cycle day is that we get free cycle rentals to try and explore the streets of HSR. This my 4th Cycle day event and have attended in other layouts also.”   – Amrutha, a HR Professional.

“I have been participating in Cycle Days for the last few months. I really enjoy the way the whole community comes together and enjoy traditional games. I look forward to participating in all cycle days in . “ – Girish, a Builder.
“The best thing about Cycle Day is that it is a community connect. In this era of Facebook and Twitter, Cycle Day opens up opportunities to meet new people and enjoy cycling in open streets.” – Bipul Das, an IT Professional.

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.
