It is a proud moment for India as Uttar Pradesh now has Asia’s first cycle highway. A first-of-its-kind project, the 207-km-long cycle highway runs between Etawah and Agra. A rally of 90 cyclists from five countries and across India followed the inauguration ceremony at the Lion Safari in Etawah.
The track criss-crosses the natural beauty of the Chambal and Yamuna rivers. Views of ravines along the way will give tourists an opportunity to enjoy the serenity of the region.
Inaugurating the highway, state minister Abhishek Mishra said, “It is a historical moment as a world-class cycling infrastructure is being made operational not only for locals but to the people of the state and the nation.”
The cycle tracks will not only give a boost to tourism, but also help in sustaining the environment. We hope to see you all there because it’s very important for us citizens to give a boost to such initiatives with realistic and far reaching goals. We can all join hands to save our environment and make this Earth a better place to live in.
