Cycling in a big city can be a real challenge with the pollution, uncontrollable traffic and the risk of being knocked down by passing cars
Now, Hyderabad is leading the way with a first-of-its-kind sustainable solar roof cycling track near the Outer Ring Road
Named Healthway, this 23-kilometre three-lane track has two stretches — 8.5 kilometres from Nanakramguda to Telangana State Police Academy (TSPA) and 14.5 kilometres from Kollur to Narsingi— converging at Narsingi Junction.
Inspired by the South Korean bike highway with solar panels, the aim is to ensure a better experience for cyclists.
There will be cycle rentals, bike repair stations at access points, food trucks and car parking where people can park their own vehicles and spend time as a family.
