Ravindra Wani, Director, Champ Endurance, expressed, “This cyclothon is one of the green initiatives we have undertaken to bring together more environment-conscious people and enable them to contribute to making the world a better place for future generations. We have enforced an age limit up to 65 which is rooted in specific considerations, ensuring the well-being of the very young participants. The time limits for completion are as follows: 10 km within 1.30 hours, 25 km within 2 hours, 50 km within 3 hours, and 100 km within 6 hours.

Krishna Prakash, Additional Director General of Force One, emphasized, “Through the Cyclothon initiative, our goal is to combat the harmful effects of air pollution, noise pollution, and traffic congestion. Cycling presents a wonderful opportunity to enhance urban environments, contributing to a cleaner and greener Mumbai. It is imperative that we foster a cycling-friendly atmosphere in India, enabling people to seamlessly incorporate cycling into their daily routines as a means of transportation.”
Vishvas Mote, Assistant Commissioner at Municipal Corporation Of Greater Mumbai (Mcgm) said, “We should opt for bicycles over motorbikes as part of our commitment to preserving nature and the environment. In our endeavor to further this cause, we have collaborated with the Indian Railways, who supported us in season 1.

Let’s elevate cycling to a new level to enhance our environment.”
