Students spreading awareness on benefits of cycling

BANGALORE: Acharya Institutes conducted its annual fest ‘Acharya Habba’, with a cyclo-thon which started from Kanteerava Stadium recently.

The cyclo-thon carried out by the students of Acharya Institutes highlighted the benefits of cycling in daily life and also encouraged more number of youngsters to commute in bicycles to colleges everyday.

They also emphasised the fact that cycling will lower pollution levels and have a progressive impact on the environment, which is consistently dwindling in the city.

This thought inspired the students of the institution to take up the issue and organise the cyclo-thon through the Acharyan Adventure club ‘Adventure.Inc’. The total 10 km cyclo-thon started from Kanteerava Stadium to Malleswaram 18 th cross grounds through Hudson circle, Vidhan Soudha, Rajbhavan, BDA junction and Cauvery Theatre.

A group of over 100 cyclists participated in the event. This event was one of the programmes organised as a part of ‘Acharya Habba’, a month long festive fever in Acharya Institutes and will culminate into a three-day fest held on March 15, 16 and 17.
