“We want to bring back Pune’s prestige as a Cycling City,” said Wani.

The initiative is aimed at reviving cycling as a mode of daily commute.‘ Metro network allows cycles; hence cyclists can travel longer distances.

”Presently besides the fitness enthusiasts. The genuine users of cycles are students who travel to school, paper delivery boys, milkmen, postmen, small level hawkers, or other people who cannot afford any type of motorized vehicles”, he added.

“Look at the developed countries where the commuters have the buying capacity but still choose to use the most efficient Human powered device—bicycle,” said IPS officer Krishna Prakash, who is the honourary Race Director.
