In a bid to promote the cycling in Bhubaneswar, the Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) in association with the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) is going to host ‘Cycles4Change’ campaign on Friday.
Bhubaneswar is one of the 95 cities to have registered for the India Cycles4Change Challenge. It is an initiative of Smart Cities Mission of the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry.
As part of the campaign, a cycle rally called ‘Cyclegiri – Respect4Cyclists’ will be organized at Ekamra Plaza Janpath. The rally will start at 6.30 AM on Friday and will culminate at Dhauli, a stretch of around 12 kms.
“We are working on creating small cycle paths in residential areas to help the citizens in doing their daily activities. We want to promote healthy lifestyle among the citizens by encouraging them to take to cycling,” BMC Commissioner Prem Chandra Chaudhary said.
