Srinagar: At least 140 students on Friday participated in a cycle race organised by the University of Kashmir to mark the World Bicycle Day.
The event was organised by the varsity’s Office of Programme Coordinator National Service Scheme under the banner of ‘Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav’.

Interacting with the participating students from the University, its affiliated colleges and some select higher secondary schools in Kashmir, Dr Nisar said such events aren’t merely ritualistic but aim at spreading the larger message of the importance of good physical wellbeing among the masses.

Dr Nisar also complimented the Office of NSS for ensuring mass participation of students in the cycle race.
Programme Coordinator NSS KU Dr Mussavir Ahmad spoke about major objectives of the World Bicycle Day and importance of holding such community-level awareness programmes about the importance of using bicycles to commute from one place to another. He thanked the University authorities and SSP (Traffic) Srinagar for their support and cooperation in facilitating the mega event.
