Weekends are time when people become lazy, get up late and not indulge in a very necessary activity, exercise.

Hyderabad Bicycling Club (HBC), that normally organises 45-50 km long cycling rides, started a new initiative called Family rides which took off from their newly opened bike station at Gachibowli, this Saturday.

Now, what does a family friendly ride mean?

Satish Appasani, in-charge of the station, says that these rides are for families, where kids, women and everyone can participate. “We are starting with 5 km ride for families and feel this is an excellent way for them to get fit and breathe in some fresh air,” he adds.

The rides will start at 6:30am and people are expected to be at the starting point by 6:15am. The HBC also has bicycles for kids and helmets are made mandatory for them. Others too are encouraged to bring helmets.

With only one meet-up held till now, Satish expects that the participation will improve by the 3rd or 4th week. So, be active and spend a family friendly weekend riding.
