Coming to Rajasthan! Wish to explore the state as per your itinerary. Then gear up yourself.  Wouldn’t it be a great fun to hop the ghats of Pushkar or snake the narrow lanes of Jaipur or wave the hilly slopes of Udaipur on cycle. The State Government has come out with a policy for promoting Eco-Tourism through cycle tourism. In the line with a similar policy of the Goa Government, rules have been made under which interested tourist can hire a cycle on rent

cycles III

Though the government intends to implement this plan in nine prominent tourist cities but initially four cities Ajmer-Pushkar, Kota Jaipur and Udaipur have been selected and very soon tourist coming to these cities will have a eco friendly transport mode taking them to places of their interest. The official formalities for the same have been completed and the implementation is in the offing.

The company selected to provide bicycles in these cities will have to set up cycle stand at allotted spots and shall rent them @ Rs. 10 for one hour. The best part of the scheme is that the person taking cycle on rent need not return to the spot where he originally rented the vehicle, instead he can return the cycle at any of the company’s approved spot. The selected company will provide 500 cycles at Jaipur and 200 cycles each for rest of cities.

cycle II

This is a welcome initiative of State Government who is inclined to make tourism mainstay of State economy. Providing more options for the tourism will definitely attract new genre of tourists  to the state.
