DERGAON, June 6 - World Bicycle Day was celebrated here with fervour and gaiety on June 3. A programme was organised on the occasion by Aashray, an organisation working for environment conservation, where several cyclists participated.

The programme, organised at the Naren Sarmah Memorial Field to promote bicycle use in daily activities and as a means of transportation, was inaugurated by social worker Atul Goswami, who only rides a bicycle.

Addressing the programme moderated by Aashray secretary Sanjoy Kumar Hazarika, Goswami said bicycle was the only vehicle that has no negative impact on the environment. �I am still riding a bicycle and I have never faced any problem with my bicycle. Cycling not only helps in physical development but also helps in conservation of environment.�

Rintu Bora, an Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) of Balidowa, a remote village, who has been working for the last 13 years without any break, was felicitated with a phulam gamusa and a citation. Bubu Mahanta from Bareghoria, Dadhara, who has also been distributing newspapers door to door for more than 15 years without any break on his bicycle, was also felicitated with a gamusa and a citation.

The meeting was attended by Biren Chandra Saikia, Sachi Gohain, Prasenjit Khound, Bichitra Bhushan Kalita, Anjana Hazarika and Milonjyoti Khataniar. It was followed by a bicycle rally where several cyclists took part with messages of utility of bicycles, which is a cheaper mode of transport and eco-friendly tool in day-to-day transportation.
