In line with the objective of last year's edition, Saksham Pedal Delhi, 2018 will aim to profess the importance of socio-environmental consciousness by promoting cycling, both as a lifestyle and as an alternate means of commute, especially for shorter distances for day to day activities such as cycling to work, riding to nearby places etc.
Radha Kapoor Khanna, founder and executive director of DO IT Sports Management said: "The first edition of India's premier cyclothon received an overwhelming response from both amateur cyclists and cycling enthusiasts alike."
"It was truly fantastic to see more than 5,000 participants or superheroes, as we like to call them, I am confident that the second edition of Saksham Pedal Delhi will only be bigger and better," she added.
