Green cycle ride planned in Shimla

Shimla, August 14

To celebrate 75th Independence Day in a 'greener way', the Himalayan Adventure Sports and Tourism Promotion Association (Hastpa), along with the Shimla Cycling Association, on Saturday announced to organise a 30-km cycling ride from St. Bede's College here to Daak Bangla village, where the riders would plant around 100 saplings.

Hastpa president Mohit Sood said that the aim of organising this event was to give the youth a sense of purpose and channel their energies in the right direction for a better future and a healthier tomorrow.

The ride route would be Nav Bahar, Sanjaulli, Dhalli, Mashobara, Talai and finally Daak Bangla, near Kufri. Around 50 cyclists have registered for the ride and the organisation aims at planting more than 100 saplings.

Sood said Himachal has the best natural ecosystem to promote mountain biking. With this idea we aim to put cycling as a core activity in and around Shimla, he added. —IANS
