Kohima, 21 Dec (ANK): Cyclothon in Kohima Town today organised by Kohima Smart City and the Kohima Municipal Council in collaboration with the Department of Youth Resources and Sports.
The event is organised as part of a series of activities of Fit India Movement under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles across the country. The Cyclothon was flagged off at Razhu Point via D-Block and culminated outside the Kohima Municipal Council Office.
In a press release, CEO Kohima Smart City Development Limited, Kovi Meyase said under the campaigns like Fit India and the Cycles for Change Challenge, Kohima City is witnessing an increase in cyclists and reports of higher sales of bicycles in spite of the general perception that cycling is not feasible in hilly places. He however said there is the need for carving out dedicated bicycle lanes in the city making it safe for all ages to cycle.
Towards this, Meyase said the Kohima Smart City is undertaking surveys and pilot interventions to encourage cycling in the city and identifying corridors to develop dedicated cycle lanes.
