  • Pune
    Let's make Pune city cycling friendly
    Pune city has a huge traffic problem. And as the government bodies try to build more and more roads for that traffic, we see an influx of more vehicles registered every year. Pune is called Oxford of East for its academic excellence. It’s also India’s second largest IT hub. While both these things were inspired by their western counterparts mainly in the USA, they failed to focus on the commute of students and employees. Almost every university and large IT parks in the USA offer cycling-friendly campuses as well as pop bicycle lanes on major roads in respective cities. Sadly Pune’s colleges and offices have failed to do this on a large scale. It is very important that companies, especially IT parks and government offices and colleges around which traffic is the maximum - should offer their employees alternate ways to commute. Luckily Pune’s cycling community is growing fast. Thanks to the first municipal cycle department in India, Pune has seen a good growth in cyclists. But many of these cyclists use cycles for recreational/exercise purposes. Thanks to the accessible cycling department many parts of Pune got dedicated cycling lanes and stands.[1] There has however barely been a rise in cycling being looked at as a commuting option. the cycle to commute revolution in Pune can be achieved with the following Notification for bicycle friendly workplaces in Private and Government offices and colleges in PMC and PCMC areas. This should include provision of Changing rooms, Shower facilities, Cycle Stands Pop up lanes on major roads near IT parks and colleges Many colleges and IT parks have large campuses which attract a large number of students and employees. Pop lanes around campuses can ensure more use of Public Bicycle Sharing systems by students and employees in these areas. Dear Punekar, Pune city has already pioneered the concept of a true bicycle friendly city thanks to citizen participation and PMC’s efforts. We have a chance to take it a step further by making it a city that Cycles to work”. [1] https://www.pmc.gov.in/en/cycle

  • Thiruvananthapuram
    Let's make our Thiruvananthapuram cycling friendly
    The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in more and more people trying to avoid public transportation for fear of contracting the virus and liike in other parts of the world, India experienced a boom in bicycle sales during the coronavirus pandemic. Although most Indian cities are not bicycle-friendly, there has been a sharp increase in recreational cycling during the pandemic as people try to beat cabin fever during lockdowns, get exercise, or avoid commutes on stuffed public transport. People now feel the need for private transport more than ever. And a major section can still notafford cars, so cycling presents an opportunity like no other. India's Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry said the pandemic has presented an opportunity to make cities more accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. In a June advisory, it recommended pedestrianization of at least three markets in every city and more bicycle lanes. Given, there is a push for cycling at a national level. Let us demand our municipal corporation to take some steps in the right direction. This is important because the ban for motor vehicles in the Kuravakonam-Kowdiar-Vellayambalam-Museum Stretch on Sundays from 5:00 am to 10;00 am was taken off. Smart city projets of cycling stations (in the Manaveeyam- Vazhuthacaud-Thampanoor-Padmanabhaswamy Temple-Vachiyoor-Palayam-Manaveeyam Road), Bicycle Track in the Manaveeyam road-Vazhuthacaud-SangeetahCollege Road was not even started even though There are enough funds in Smart City project. Join the movement to make Trivandrum cycling friendly.

In a June advisory, it recommended pedestrianization of at least three markets in every city and more bicycle lanes. Given, there is a push for cycling at a national level.

    Kolkata Green : Facilitating Bicycle Commute and Restoring Bicycle Culture
    We reassert our appeal with a paean on the bicycle: Benefits of Bicycling What does cycling speak and mean A tale of serene city and verdant green Oh! It's healthy climate's next of kin And air water would ever be clean Pedaling paws help float like fish's fin Keep the rider strong, fit and lean Herald freedom from smoke and din Save the Nature, save the Man more sin All'll recall what a leafy lore life's been Ere the vehicles vomitted venoms 'n toxin Cheers! We pave the way, let the wheel spin And lo, the leaves in smile, the grasses grin.

    Make cycling cool in Mangaluru.
    During the bad times of this pandemic, fitness and being healthy is the utmost importance to every individual. I feel cycling is a fun and effective way to achieve the same. Of course, while cycling during these times it is important for us to maintain social distancing and take the necessary care to prevent the spread of COVID.
