On the occasion of World Environment Day 2012, Rachna Sansad’s Institute of Environmental Architecture is organizing a cycling tour in Aarey.
Date: Sunday, June 3
Time: 7am onwards
Venue: Aarey Toll Naka at Goregaon
The Cycling tour will be conducted by Rachna Sansad’s Institute of Environmental Architecture and environmental enthusiasts who would be taking cyclists around a 5 km scenic ride of Aarey.
The tour will include a ‘rest spot’ in ‘Panchvati’, a garden exclusively maintained by the senior citizens club of Aarey colony. The garden has fruit-bearing trees which have resulted in a return of avi-fauna in the area.
Aarey is home to over 126 species of butterflies, 46 species of reptiles, 13 species of amphibians, 34 species of wild flowers, 16 species of mammals, 5 species of scorpions and several species of spiders.
We believe that the cycling tour would help Mumbaikars appreciate the few remaining green spaces in the city and celebrate World Environment Day by being close to nature.
