Cycling Group helps in tackling Second Covid wave: Karnataka

  • | Friday | 7th May, 2021

 About 190 volunteers in Bangalore and 29 in Hubli-Dharwad are there helping the needy.  

This Cycling group Named Relief Riders help people in delivering medicines and other essential stuffs amid lockdown. This group is headed by Bengaluru’s ‘bicycle mayor’ Sathya Sankaran, who is a part of BYCS, a Dutch social enterprise that heads a worldwide network of international cycle mayors.

The programme kicked off in Chennai on May 3. Felix John, Chennai’s bicycle mayor, says, “We are aware the situation is much worse than last year. Hence, it’s probably riskier for us to move around. But the people in need of essentials and medicines have also grown which is why we decided to volunteer.”
