- I was driving out of my gym on early morning of Saturday. Something very interesting, hooked my eyes. I was so excited looking at this that I suddenly stopped by car. Go out & checked with the guards around. I kept inquiring about this & went inside the office to gather for information. You must be wondering , what am I talking about? A cycle rally starting North to South India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. I have heard about motorcyclists & car rallies but a cycle rally? I was astonished to learn about this. I met with the participants & their leader.
We had a good chat about the entire rally. They were a group of 22 participants. They had a hault at YMCA, Connaught Place-Delhi. The Rotary Foundation Centennial Cycle Rally – Kashmir to Kanyakumari Swachh Bharat Tour de Rotary is being conducted by Rotary Club of Madras Midtown, RI Dist. 3230.
They started from Jammu, on 7th of Nov ’16 and travel through Delhi, Jaipur, Gandhinagar, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram to reach Kanyakumari on the 9th Dec ’16. This sounds quyite interesting. Below is the map, they are following.
This Rally is to promote 100 years of good work done by The Rotary Foundation and to raise Funds for its Humanitarian Service projects including Clean and Green India projects. 22 cyclists will cover the 4500 Kms, in 33 days, with 27 Flag-off points.
Govt. of India – Ministry of Urban Development along with the en-route Local Urban Bodies and Rotary Clubs are supporting this event, to create awareness on Swachh Bharat. I feel it is an amazing step to promote a good deed.
