The ride was organised to mark the World Earth Hour Day. About 400 cyclists gathered at the venue at the break of dawn and enthusiastically took part in the event. “I am so happy to be here at this event. I wish more such rides are organised in the city,” noted Sindhu.

The ride was jointly organised by the Hyderabad Bicycling Club (HBC), World Wildlife Fund, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and Hyderabad Metro Rail. ”It’s been reported that because of pollution, a man’s life reduces by three years. Cycling is the best alternative to prevent the spread of pollution and to boost one’s health. The awareness is increasing in cities and HBC has been leading to spread the cause in the city.
