Need Innovative cycles that are safer and comfortable.

Cycles need a better seat and more safety for them to really taken up by large number of people.
Creating cycle tracks in many areas is feasible only if large number of cycles justify the cost.

cycle track
by Puneet Gupta on Dec 12, 2015 02:03 PM

when this article says cycle track do not exist.. its because urban town planners / politicians didnt think so far.. bad roads, bad infrastructure, mismanagement of traffic.. blame on state govt. politicians for all bad things happening..

Cycling in India
by R Chakravarti on Dec 09, 2015 01:08 PM

I don't think it is a good idea, given the air pollution and the chances of being hit by a motor vehicle. Of course it would be great if the authorities could make cycling feasible and pleasant in our cities and on our highways.

(I have cycled in North Mumbai in the 1970s and in the U.S. as a student, both around town and cross country.)

Good going

It is good to cycle but it is quite risky in few cities. Very few cycling lanes are available in cities and as mentioned by you there is a cycling lane in Bangalore in but this is only hijacked by other vehicles for parking. cycling is good for everybody and the environment but we don\'t have the proper infra and if willing to take that extra risk, go for it.

most rash driving cases happens here, not to mention the bad roads, also people take you like beggar, it might be a good idea in villages or on good road with required infrastructure, else you are just digging your grave unknowingly in a city like mumbai.

cycling to work
by RP SINGH on Dec 08, 2015 11:43 AM

I should not say I, instead we should feel proud for people like you.

and Those who are commented this and that execuses against cycling should not.

As it is very easy to critise any think instead to find out the goodness within.

So, people loving themselves and their friends should trying to convience for cycling.

Don't worry I am going to join you. till then

In Kolkata- This is impossible.
by Sanchari on Dec 08, 2015 11:24 AM  | Hide replies

My family members will never be convinced of cycling 17 kms to office and back when the number of vehicles on road ( especially the huge AC buses which ply in my office locality called Salt Lake) is so high which will make cycling prone to accident. Not possible here in Kolkata unless Government makes stringent norms to reduce public vehicles.

Dedicated cycling tracks
by Gerami Havewala on Dec 08, 2015 10:49 AM  | Hide replies

The author says, "Cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Delhi have dedicated cycling tracks."

Could someone please enlighten where Mumbai's dedicated cycling tracks are situated, which one can use to commute to work.

If only there were good roads
by Debjit Adhikari on Dec 08, 2015 09:35 AM

Very noble idea. I am surely going to try it out. 14 km is no big deal. Only if they had better roads in Kolkata.
