Bangalore’s ‘Bicycle Mayor’ Sathya Sankaran is set to introduce a Bike to Work Challenge, commencing October 2018. A pilot version of this challenge is set to commence in September. This undertaking aims at encouraging bicycling as a form of commuting, while also emphasising the need of the hour to reduce one’s carbon footprint. This challenge will be open to companies and teams of participants that represent a company, wherein the participants will be given a month’s time to register on the app that has been developed and launched for this challenge. At the end of six months, the team with the highest number of people commuting to work by cycle, with the highest distance covered, will be presented with a trophy and ‘green credits’. If a company is unwilling to register, employees from the company can come together and register as a team. Additionally, a chosen ambassador will mentor the participants throughout the challenge.
