 Patna Organises Cycle Rally to Promote Pollution Free Environment

Hundreds of enthusiastic residents in Patna participated in a cycle rally on Sunday to promote a healthy lifestyle among the masses and spread awareness about rising pollution levels.

Despite the drizzle, the cyclists rode through the roads of the city to relay their message that 'they care' about the environment and expect others to understand the need to preserve it.

The organisers believe that cycling can help curb pollution and is a good way of exercise for all those leading a sedentary lifestyle.

"We want to send the message that cycling can help us achieve a pollution free environment, we also want to say that there is a need to save energy, to lessen the traffic on roads, and tackling various other problems for the construction of a healthy society. We expect that the message reaches out to the people," said Vivek Kumar, organiser of the rally.

The participants contended that cycling is a good alternate for driving and also a way to tackle the rising cost of POL (petroleum, oil and lubricants).

"Pollution is on the rise because of excessive reliance on these. The petrol and diesel resources may exhaust, we want to say that we should try to cope with these limitations and try, at our own level, to stop pollution," said Balendra Kumar, a participant.

India has some of the most polluted cities in the world, many of them continually shrouded in eye-stinging smog of noxious fumes from cars and industry.
