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.
The event proved educative through a ‘Cycle maintenance workshop’ organized where the residents were taught about the best riding postures and ways of maintaining various parts of a bicycle.
