  5. Traffic: Cycles actually reduce traffic congestion and the economic cost of traffic delays.

  6. Energy: On a cycle you take up little space, burn no gasoline and produce no waste, whereas a motorbike will travel 1,600 km (960 miles) on the equivalent energy of a gallon of gas.

  8. Use of materials: Between 70 and 100 cycles can be built with the resources required to build one car. The amount of steel and other materials in its construction is less than two percent of that found in a small car.

  9. World Heritage Sites: There are seven heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley alone. It’s our duty to protect it, for the sake of our culture, identity and our world recognition as well. Cycles if promoted near and around these sites will obviously lend a hand in their conservation activities, by reducing pollution and good traffic management and promote tourism at the same time.
