Planning "Feel Bengaluru Cycle Day", a monthly event
We are kicking off the campaign via a monthly event called "Feel Bengaluru Cycle Day". Its a simple call for everyone to just take their cycles out, 'feel' the city early in the morning by cyling through fresh air and empty roads on a Sunday morning to Cubbon Park,
Come to Cubbon park on your cycle, on the last Sunday of every month. And 'feel bangalore', the trees that still surround the roads, the fresh air in the morning, and the greens at the lovely Cubbon Park.
We have spoken to DULT and BMTC already, and the good news is they have agreed to support and partner for this event! DULT has agreed to be the anchor for the event, and BMTC is going to support the event by making special shuttle arrangements on the day.
BMTC sees cycling as an important mode for last mile connects, and cycling has the potential of extending the reach of every bus stand. To showcase as well as learn towards that future, BMTC will help by making this possible:
- If Cubbon Park is too far for a rider to cycle all the way,
- Then, one can cycle to a TTMC (5 TTMCs planned for the first event day on Oct 27)
- Here, you can either park your cycle and just take the shuttle to Cubbon Park and back
- Or, carry your cycle to Cubbon park in the special BMTC shuttle!
Stay tuned as we iron out more details and work the logistics with help of DULT, BMTC plus all the well wishers and organizers of the broader Cycle Day campaign.
