Mangalore, Nov. 28: Rxlife is a lifestyle modification centre based in Mannagudda Mangalore. It has been organizing mass Cycle Rally in December, every year since 2007. The Seventh annual Cycle Rally will be held on 8th December. The Rally will be flagged off from Lady Hill Circle at 6.30 A.M.

The Rally will cover a distance of 18 Kms, passing through Kottara – Kuloor – TannirBavi- Kuloor – Kottara- Malemar- Derebail and conclude at Bharath Mall around 9 A.M.

The Rally which started with 240 Cycles in 2007 saw more than 1600 riders last year. The number may cross 2000 this year. This is not a race or competition. This is just an opportunity to ride together and explore the suburbs of Mangalore.

Purpose: The main reason why this event gets increasing patronage is that it provides an opportunity for children to improve their riding skills and reflexes on road. For the grown-ups it is a nostalgic ride down the memory lane. Over the years, one can find many families enjoying the ride together. The theme for the year has been ‘Pedal for Fitness’.  In short, the purpose of the rally is popularizing cycling as a fitness and short distance commuting mode, increasing awareness about need for sane and safe riding habit and develop interest in outdoor activity amongst children. The Organizers believe in the philosophy of cycling i.e. transformation from ‘Me Me Me to We We We’, from self-centered life style to socially responsive co-habitat, through such mass pedaling experience.
