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.
