What Can I Do? 8 Ways to Make India Cycling-Friendly

#ResetWithCycling : A move towards cycling revolution

Whether for good or bad, the Covid-19 pandemic changed us all. With increased focus on people’s health, one trend that saw a comeback was cycling. 

More than 50 percent of the people in India use non-motorized forms of transport, such as walking and cycling, for short trips yet our country does not have cycling friendly infrastructure. We believe that roads should be made for everybody.

Learn how we can #ResetWithCycling and what you can do to demand change!

Did you enjoy cycling on the road with the breeze hitting your face as a kid? Well, children now cannot know that feeling.

As per WHO, road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years.

Our youth deserves safer roads and that is why I am demanding better cycling infrastructure and policies.

P.S. Sign the petition and forward this message to your contacts and create a chain of changemakers.

The pandemic changed all of us. In a bid to keep fit and have better health, many of us started to walk and cycle. In fact, 2020 saw the highest ever cycle sales in India!

Even though many of us have now become cyclists, what’s still missing is cycling-friendly infrastructure. The roads aren’t safe for people like us. 

The streets, in their current state, kill 1.5 lakh people annually in the country. It shouldn’t have to be this way. A study has shown that cycling friendly infrastructure- specifically, separated and protected bike lanes – could reduce fatalities by 75%

This is why I’m joining the revolution to make India a cycling friendly country on and think all of us should too.
