Cycling has recently become one of the most popular sports. As people become more concerned about their health, it has also become a popular hobby. Cycling is a sport that almost anyone can enjoy, regardless of age or physical ability, and it has grown in popularity in recent years due to the significant health benefits it provides. A heart-pounding downhill ride can be had on a tight dirt track. You, on the other hand, may decide to take to the open road. Cycling, in any case, offers recreation, exercise, and a convenient way to get around town.
Inspiria Knowledge Campus hosted its first physical cycling event, Innowheels Endurance Trials on December 19, 2021. The day was Sunday and the atmosphere was calm with deserted streets. However at Inspiria Knowledge Campus, unlike any other Sunday the campus was buzzing. Starting at 5.00 a.m., the campus was packed with volunteers and enthusiastic participants for the Innowheels Endurance Trials. The 50Km cycling challenge drew participants from all over Siliguri as well as the neighboring hills of Kurseong and Darjeeling.
With their performance on the road, these cyclists demonstrated their love and passion for the sport. They began at the Inspiria Knowledge campus and rode through Dudhia, Bagdogra, and finally back to the campus finish line. On the faces of these cyclists could be seen a sense of accomplishment after each hill climb and the thrill of going downhill. The route was filled with beautiful scenery because it was in the Himalayan foothills. The participants controlled their speed based on the scenery. This ability to ride slowly because they wanted to take in the scenery also allowed them to take breaks and take a breather.
These cyclists not only had a great time, but they also served as an inspiration to volunteers and bystanders. Their zeal and dedication surely served as an inspiration to anyone who has thought about taking up cycling as a hobby but has been unable to do so due to a variety of factors.
Inspiria Knowledge Campus has promoted fitness as well as education, entrepreneurship, and employability since its inception. The various fitness initiatives aid in the formation of a community of people who share a common enthusiasm and love for a particular activity. In addition to Innowheels, there is an annual marathon event called Inspiria YouthRun.
Innowheels, which was launched in January of this year, already held its first virtual cycling event in May. It was a week-long cycling event which saw participants from all over the country. It was a successful event, and the same-named cycling team also competed in a cycling event, CNG Cyclovaganza in Kolkata at the start of 2021. As a result, this first physical event served as another step in the initiative’s goal of promoting cycling and outdoor sports in the North Bengal region. Because the area is already rich in natural beauty, it is an ideal location for a thrilling outdoor sport like cycling.
What is Innowheels
Inno Wheels is an initiative which was born with a thought of ‘giving back to the community’. Started by the sports management team at Inspiria Knowledge Campus, Siliguri with a team of few cyclists. It is a first of its kind initiative in the field of bicycle riding in North Bengal. Driven with the goal of revitalizing the love for bicycle riding in North Bengal, Inno Wheels also serves as a platform for many riders who have buried their passion for cycling. As, cycling is such a sport which anyone can get involved in, and get back so much from it while giving back much more to the world around you.
