Although Whitefield is a haven for cyclists in Bengaluru, awareness for a much greener space is the need of the hour. Nowadays, people in Whitefield, which is a hub of multinational companies and IT industry, are using cycle for their daily office commute. We are seeing it as a positive trend. We want to promote this further. Our platform creates awareness on reducing carbon footprint.”

The cyclothon will comprise 5km and 10km races for men and women along with a separate 5km race for veterans. “We invite experienced cyclists to the veteran category that also includes people aged above 50 years. For example, a senior citizen, who is not a regular cyclist can also participate in this category, In a nutshell, we are bringing cycle and fitness enthusiasts and nature lovers from different walks of life together on a single platform,” shares Singh.
The event will take place on July 28 from 5.45am to 8.30am at Forum Neighbourhood Mall, Whitefield.
