Kathmandu Cycle City 2020 (KCC2020) is a campaign that started in Kathmandu University in 2009 with the primary goals to make cycle friendly University and to make Kathmandu a cycle friendly city by 2020 with various cycle infrastructures. So far KCC has done discussions programs, talk shows, rallies, lobbying at different government agencies, department and ministries for the required policies and cycling infrastructures in Kathmandu. Recently we had gifted a bicycle to the Prime Minister on the World Environment Day as to appeal for the needed attention on the issue. In 2012, an NGO named Cycle City Network Nepal was registered under which various campaigns like Kathmandu Cycle City, Banepa Cycle City, Dharan Cycle City, Pokhara Cycle City etc are being conducted simultaneously.
Talking about the cycling scenario of Kathmandu University we had installed cycle stands inside the KU premises last year. This year we aim to take the campaign to the next level by
awaring the faculties and students about the benefits of cycling, physically and economically. We have been promoting cycling in Kathmandu University since last two years by organizing cycle rally on World Environment Day from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel.
Marking World Environment Day 2014 celebrating with the slogan “Raise your voice, not the sea level”, this year we are planning this program to be conducted on 5th June, 2014 (Thursday) primarily focusing on youth and enthusiasts of Kathmandu University and secondarily cycle enthusiasts all around Kathmandu valley and Kavre. We aim to encourage clean and green environment with zero emission through the promotion of cycle.
