With melting glaciers, drastic temperature changes, heavy pollution, etc., becoming a global concern, setting nature-friendly and sustainable goals are essential. In the same endeavor, The Green Path, a bicycle highway between Etawah lion Safari and Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh, India was declared open on 26th November 2016.
The Green Path is inspired from countries like Amsterdam , Berlin and Paris where a bicycle is a common choice for commuting.
One can enjoy the natural beauty of the Chambal and Yamuna rivers while cycling on this track. The picturesque views of ravines along the way captivate the souls and offer peace to the mind. The 207 km long and 7 meters wide stretch covering popular tourist destinations like Bateshwarnath Temple, Naugava ka Quila, Raja Bhoj ki Haveli, etc. will promote eco-tourism and attract the cycling enthusiasts from around the world. This innovative construction also offers connectivity of 92 villages across two districts.
The two-day inaugural event saw an active participation of approximately 150 to 230 cyclists from 12 states of India. Fitness lovers from other countries like Germany, USA, Sweden and Bangladesh also participated in the same.
Shimla Hills – one of the leading names in the agro-products industry – supports this noble cause. Thus, Kundan Singh and Aditi Gaur from Shimla Hills’ Team shared the enthusiasm and pedaled between the two tourist destinations to promote a healthy lifestyle.
