Mumbai Gets Its 1st Sunday-Cycle Track
Bringing cheers to cyclists, Mumbai has got its first dedicated Sunday-cycle track. The city will have two lanes dedicated for cyclists, from the NCPA theatre at Nariman Point to the Worli Sea link, every Sunday.
Mumbaikars can now enjoy cycling on the 11-km parallel track every Sunday from 6 am to 10 am. There will be four points on this 11-km track where you can take bicycle and helmet on rent.
"Commendable efforts by the Mumbai Police Commissioner and BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) Commissioner for the initiative," Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said.
"This is an effort to encourage cycling culture in Mumbai. Much more to come," Fadnavis added.
To reduce air pollution and spread the importance of health, the BMC also plans to start such cycle tracks in other parts of megapolis, and will be providing the basic infrastructure for that.
