5th Anniversary of Mangalore Bicycle Club along with Vanamahotsava Celebrations was a grand success with 100 plus cyclists from our club participating. We started the ride at 6.30 am from Mangalore City Corporation. At the end of the ride 50 saplings consisting of plants bearing fruits and a few with medicinal values, were planted at premises of Prakash Offset at Baikampady by our members.
Vanamahotsava Celebration was inaugurated by Mr. K.C. Prabhu, past governor of Lions Club Mangalore. He spoke on the need of more of these kind of initiatives in our city. Mr. Dinesh Nayak, part of Sasya Shyamala and an Environmentalist with extensive knowledge on plants and trees spoke about why such initiatives are required for our ecosystem and human health.
Our club had decided to continue planting in the months of July and August every year as part of our Vanamahotsava initiative. This will be a tradition we will continue forever to inspire and create awareness on this for generations to come.
An event with this kind of participation stands testimonial to the fact that all members of MbC stands united for greener and social causes.
