Zainul Abideen

I am an ultra marathon runner and cyclist, currently working in promoting health by living healthy life style and training a group of 150 citizens across my city. On special occassions I have created various awareness campaigns for cycling in Moradabad with the cooperation of local administrations. I would work to transform Moradabad into a cycling city as a way of addressing its major mobility challenges. As an urban cyclist myself, I see the bike not only as a mode of transportation, but also as a lifestyle, a tool for societal change. That’s why I focus my energy on activism and advocacy, by participating and organizing events that generate enthusiasm and change wrong perceptions about bicycles.

What are your plans as Bicycle Mayor?

Cycling has been my passion for many years. My plan is to influence as many people as possible to change their mobility habits. I will mainly -but not only- focus on women, since I believe the bicycle can play an important role in women’s empowerment. I also plan to facilitate the communication between the bike community and the local authorities in order for them to apply bike-friendly policies. I am also appointed as Brand ambassador of local authorities of Moradabad smart city & Golds Gym Moradabad, and with there collabration I can raise my voice at large im fitness community, schools, colleges, and local citizens.
