As many as 4,500 cycling enthusiasts took part in the third edition of Bangalore Cycle Day at Yelahanka New Town on Sunday.

The Allalasandra lake and its surroundings teemed with cyclists while the 13th ‘A’ Cross at Yelahanka New Town buzzed with cultural activities organised as part of the event. The cyclists pedalled for seven km covering main roads of the locality.

The Yelahanka United Environment Association (YUVA) had organised the event in association with Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) and Urban Development Department.

Over eight police chowkis equipped with cameras were donated to the Yelahanka and Yelahanka New Town police stations by EZZY group along with YUVA committee members for the occasion. “The chowkis helped to streamline traffic issues in the locality apart from improving security in the area. Each chowki costs around Rs 1.2 lakh,” said the Association president Dr S T Tayappa.

Speaker of Legislative Assembly Kagodu Thimmappa, who inaugurated the event, planted a tree at the Allalasandra lake and spoke about the importance of cycling.
