Organised by (PCRA) in collaboration with DO IT Management (India) Pvt. Ltd, around 6,500 are expected to take part in "India's cyclothon."

Saksham Pedal will aim to profess the importance of socio-environmental consciousness by promoting cycling, both as a lifestyle and as an alternate means of commute, especially for shorter distances for day to day activities such as cycling to work, riding to nearby places etc.

Scheduled to be flagged off from the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the event will see participation from Indian athletes and amateur riders who will be competing for a prize money fund of Rs 10 lakh.

Commenting on the event, Radha Kapoor Khanna, of DO IT Management said: "The first edition of India's cyclothon received an overwhelming response from both, amateur cyclists and cycling enthusiasts alike."

"It was truly fantastic to see more than 5000 participants or superheroes as we like to call them, I am confident that the second edition of Saksham Pedal Delhi, will only be bigger and better," she added.
