A. Cycling In India
Cycles have come a long way in India, from historically being viewed for commuting to having created a space in the minds of urban individuals as a great way to keep fit and have fun. Cycling for fun and fitness has caught up with residents of metros like Bangalore, Pune, Delhi, Chennai among others. With a yearly turnover of around twelve million cycles, India is the second largest manufacturer of bicycles in the world; needless to say that it is one of the most established industries here. Cycles today have a vast range and gamut of activities as compared to their past. This combined with the rising fuel prices has helped cycling grow prominence in urban India. In an era of tablets, apps and mobiles, it is also the perfect vehicle to keep the kids outdoors and fit.
