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. Bhaskar Rao who is an avid cyclist himself has helped the club immensely.
Launched to promote cycling as a way of transport and for a healthier lifestyle, 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.
To kick-start activities, BCC organised a cycle maintenance workshop on Oct 20 at Infinity Studios. The free workshop was conducted by Dipen Shah&Anvith KS and attended by cyclists and enthusiasts and were given lessons on how to clean a bike, tune it to perfection and help them with the nuances of cycling right.
