A recent study by TERI states that if bicycles substitute two-and four-wheelers used for short-distance trips in India, it can result in an annual benefit of Rs 1.8 trillion. But it’s not so much the economic benefits, as the environment. Reduced pollution from toxic emissions, fewer traffic jams and most importantly, a socially approved way of maintaining distance in a post COVID world.
Let’s face it — our cities are not bicycle-friendly. The movement has begun, and we need millions of citizens to rally behind it. Join the campaign to make India cycle-friendly. Change begins with us.
