Launched to promote cycling as a way of transport and for a healthier lifestyle, BCC has planned its first cycle ride on Sunday, Oct 27 from Belgaum Club.
The event is part of a planned monthly ride system being created around Belgaum across various routes & different terrain allowing cyclists to experience nature and the natural beauty of Belgaum.

Shah says,”Belgaum has the numbers with respect to a cycling community, BCC as a platform can now provide them with the opportunity to ride more & experience more. The organising team of Tour of Nilgiris from Breakaway Sports Unlimited, are helping put a structure and purpose for Belgaum Cycling Club. Their experience is coming in quite handy. Add to that the support from Mr. Rao who is an avid cyclist himself said,” I don’t see why this wont succeed.“

People are quickly grasping the idea that cycling is no more just a mode of transportation but one that provides for good health, gives an opportunity to explore in a unique way and creating a sense of camaraderie & friendship amongst cyclists which you seldom see in other sport.

Cycling and running helps me keep fit, allows my mind to be crystal clear and relieves stress. Its a safe mode of transportation especially within the city and overall has only advantages. Now with Belgaum Cycling Club being formed to provide a structure and encourage youngsters to take on the sport; I look forward to more and more cyclists in the roads.” commented Mr. Rao.

To kick-start activities, Dipen Shah from Infinity Studios is organising a cycle maintenance workshop on Oct 20 at Infinity Studios opp millennium gardens,tilakwadi Belgaum-6 between 11am to 3pm. The free workshop will help cyclists and enthusiasts with lessons on how to clean a bike, tune it to perfection and help them with the nuances of cycling right. Following this would be BCC’s first event on Sunday, Oct 27 from Belgaum Club when they would have their first of a series of bike rides & events. The rides created are free for participants, allowing cyclists to just come and have fun.
