cycle-ride, cycle-ride to office, new year cycle-ride, odd-even car plan, chandigarh newsON A day that Delhi kicked off its new odd-even car plan, Chandigarh made its own symbolic gesture for cleaner air.

UT Adviser Vijay Kumar Dev travelled to his UT Secretariat office in Sector 9 on a bicycle from his Sector 7 home as part of an initiative by a local cycling club. Children and adult volunteers rode the 3-km distance with Dev, who looked the part with a cycling helmet.

He returned home in his official car in the evening. The bicycles had been provided by the organisers, who took them away in a van after the symbolic ride. A few of the bicycles were provided by CITCO. In between, Dev car-pooled with UT Home Secretary Anurag Aggarwal for a meeting at the Governor’s house.

Go Green Cycling Club has launched a campaign to promote cycling and to prevent pollution. Dev had appreciative words for the club’s efforts.

Last month, the Punjab and Haryana High Court Welfare Association had observed a car-free day that saw judges and lawyers walking and cycling to work and back.

The districts courts did the same a few days later.
