“Pune Cycle Plan :
Safe Rides for Everyone, Everywhere
The streets of Pune used to echo the sound of cycle bells in the mornings and evenings during the early years when people took their cycles to work and back home . Today, the cycle bells have been replaced by the honks of motor vehicles that crowd the streets 24×7.

The  existing  infrastructure  was  not  well  executed, it was discontinuous, and poorly maintained, which contributed to people abandoning the cycle.

As part of the proposal, the team  worked out a network of streets that aimed at achieving Complete - Continuous - Connected, and Safe Cycle Network in the City.
