It all began in the summer of 2018 after I bought a new bicycle for myself. I had little realization on how this simple machine is about to bring a massive change in me. With every ride I felt a sense of freedom. Freedom to move and to be outdoors. I was able to connect with people and establish new relationships across age group, culture and mindsets. And as the wheels moved around more often, it unlocked several barriers – transforming my thinking. A cautious experiment of ‘Pedal to Work’ became a confident affair. I received appreciation from my family, friends and social circle. Being labelled as a smart commuter, I started promoting cycling through my blogs, social media and casual discussions.
Bicycle, an old-time transit system has lot of relevance in modern cities. It is a simple answer to many complex problems. Cycling reduces burden on environment and provides greater health benefits. It is a more economical option for commuting and even offers opportunity for social engagement.
To inspire and involve more people to adopt cycling in their daily lives is my goal.
Come join me!
Let’s pedal together and make cycling a way of life.
Best wishes, Vijay Malhotra.
