What are your plans as Bicycle Mayor?

My plan for my 1st term as a Bicycle Mayor is to make #CycleToWork a new normal in the country. Cycling is not new for us, especially in India, cycles have been the only mode of travel for many people. However, with the time we see a disconnect now especially in women and children. I want to reconnect people to cycling. My plan is to create awareness amongst the people from all the age group and sectors that Cycle is the most eco-friendly, economical and healthy mode of travel. My plan is to bridge a gap between cycle users and competent authorities to make Delhi a cycle friendly city.
