This #TCS_Fit4Life campaign was an initiative of CSR wing of TCS to motivate its employees for adopting #Cycling_to_Work at least for a few days in a week, thereby saving fuel and saving environment, while protecting it for the future generation.
The cyclothon was organized at TCS Bhubaneswar campus on 23rd August 2017 at 3:00 PM. TCS Bhubaneswar Center Head, Mr. Manoj Panda flagged off this Event. More than 150 employees and officers of TCS and cyclists of BCAC & 22 Bikes participated in this Cyclothon from TCS Campus to Sikharchandi and back. Jai Odisha – An NGO provided the bicycles for this event .The Cyclothon emphasized on use of green transport and cycling to reduce pollution, improve health and reduce carbon emission for a healthier tomorrow.
At BCAC, we do regular rides, arrange different cycling events, and use social media as well. The Bhubaneswar cycling fraternity has grown to around 500 serious cyclists, while it only had around 20 cyclists back in 2014. The work for developing the community continues!
