Jamshedpur: A group of youths took a cycle trip from JRD Tata sports complex to Khandarbera to spread awareness on environment. Fitness organisation Faststep in association with cycling club Steel Cyclos organised the event. The participants covered a distance of approximately 34 km early morning.
�We wanted to remind people and raise awareness about the perks of cycling in their weekly schedule . Not only does it keeps you fit physically it also rejuvenates and keeps you agile mentally. On the other hand we spread message on to save water and reduce pollution,� said Aparajita Apra, a young participant from Faststep.
The people were also excited to interact with cyclists as they spoke about their responsibilities in protecting the environment and maintaining green protocol.
�We should adopt such healthy practices. It will be better not only for our environment, but for our future health as well. Environment protection is not something to be observed only for programmes and functions. It is something that we should imbibe in our lives. It can easily be done if we have the conviction and will,� said another participant.
