Saksham Cyclothon, India’s Premier Cyclothon, and is managed by the PetroleumConservation Research Association (PCRA), which is a non-profit organization that was established in 1978 under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Government of India, that has been involved with the promotion of energy efficiency in variety of sections of the country. The chief goal of the Cyclothon is to spread the information about the harmful effects of the fumes and chemicals from the vehicles and how they degrade the health of a person, a child and old people. It is also arranged so that people would use cycles for short distances and which will be much better for the environment and their health as well.
Since morning, people began to post pictures of themselves, readying themselves for the Cyclothon with cycles and other materials.
They also posted encouraging messages for others to join them in the Cyclothon. As it is going to profit everyone, and isn’t harmful in anyway. This is one of many other initiatives that are made to spread awareness about the steady deterioration of the environment and how people can help create a change. The official site has been posting on twitter the information that might be needed for the race, along with directions as to from where it will begin and where it might end.
