Recent evidence has demonstrated that substantial changes in cycling levels can be achieved in the UK, with the potential for increasing cycling being greatest in the city regions. This report explores the potential impact of a step change in the delivery of interventions to support and promote cycling in the English city regions outside of London.

With citizens and government bodies looking to promote bicycles, a city-based engineer has claimed to have invented a solar-motor pedi-cab, (a tricycle of sorts) that could potentially replace the traditional auto rickshaw.

Chunabhatti-based PK Pillai has now sent the designs to IIT-Bombay for comments are looking for funding to promote the model commercially.

London: Doctors have for long said that cycling is good for health.

New Delhi: The humble bicycle, the affordable personal mode of transport for the poor, will be hit by the pinching inflation as higher input costs have prompted cycle manufacturers to increase prices, which will affect the low-income group of the society.

Following a meeting of the taskforce to review the policy on cycle-rickshaws and other non-motorised transport as part of a larger transport and traffic plan for the city, a consensus was arrived at on allowing plying of cycle-rickshaw in all areas of the Capital, including the posh Lutyens' Delhi.

Ahmedabad: It is a different story that cycle tracks did no good for the BRTS system as they lie unused along the 55-kilometre corridor. There is however a sliver lining for the Sabarmati riverfront where the Sabarmati Riverfront Development Corporation Limited (SRFDCL) has woven in a paver block cycle track. The track would be the closest to the river followed by the pedestrian pathway.

Cycling to work may seem the healthy option, but a study has shown that people riding in cities inhale tens of millions of toxic nanoparticles with every breath, at least five times more than drivers or pedestrians.

Cycle-rickshaw is considered an economical and comfortable medium of transport for the common man in small as well as big cities. But there are 15 districts in the state where cycle-rickshaws are not prevalent either due to geographical conditions or congested population. These include such big cities as Bhopal and Indore and smaller ones like Raisen, Harda, Shajapur etc.

Ranchi, May 14: It will be cheap, eco-friendly and will also save fuel.
