Ever wonder what aspect of Cycle Day got most attention and interest around? It was the news about BMTC trying an experiment of allowing people to carry their cycles on the Bus. Since Volvo or similar low floor buses are the only ones where it is possible to carry cycles along without causing inconvenience to other commuters, this experiment is limited to those types of buses.

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,
Tomorrow (Saturday, 21/Sept) few Praja members are riding bicycles to Tattekere. All are welcome to join. This is our second outside-the-city, and first relatively long distance ride. First was the one up the Nandi hill, some 25km up and down.
After sitting thru lessons from the Jayanagar cycle lanes rollout, the various DPR's that have been presented for different areas, polls by Praja both online & offline during mobilicity & practical experience riding on Bangalore streets we could be doing this a lot more effectively.
