Sharing experience puts anyone in the celebrity of happiness and perfection towards enhancing the objectives. Then, what is our objective? Cycling - “Go Green” !!
In this back drop, I thought it fit to share the following, so that I am sure, you will certainly lay concrete towards achieving the common goal set for the benefit of the society at large.
Building a team for this cause, you will kindly agree with me is very difficult, though not impossible. Nothing is impossible in this world provided the cause is unequivocally made known when the aspiration comes to the mind. Then, the Success is sure.
Having frustrated due to the colossal traffic, thought of venturing into cycling. During the last seven months to till day, I have urbanized a team consisted of 14 members of our company in which, twelve guys and two girls are in the venture. All of us are from the same Corporate building.
I have marked Tuesday and Fridays to be our Go Green Day and we all ensure to wear our Go Green Attire as shown in our home page.
I understand with the frustrating traffic around, it’s difficult for us to think of cycling and motivating other colleges would be a far thinking but with my experience, I feel, in the beginning one need to be more cautious on the road and the moving traffic their after u would get used to it. Once u settle down comfortable then start talking to u’r colleagues about the benefits of cycling,
1. Cycling is Non polluting – obviously eco friendly hence better way of contribution for Mother Nature
2. Saves petrol in bargain saves you money
3. Eases traffic and causes less congestion on the road.
4. Keeps you fit and trim. Very good for the heart and a good exercise.
5. Faster than walking and in places like B’lore even fasters than Cars thus helping us to be on time..etc etc Few more benefits listed on http://www.gogreengocycling.org/Home/benefits-of-cycling
All our team members ensure to carry a set of changing cloths to address sweating problems more over we do try to change with 1 more set of Go Green T-Shirt and work, so that people around us r aware about our cycling activity.. below or few photographs of my team mates from my work place.
