First Cycle Stand In Kingsway

Cycle City Network Nepal is a non-profit youth network dedicated to improve the quality of environment and contribute to a healthier life style by promoting the use of an easily accessible eco-friendly means of transport: the bicycle.

As a part of our campaign “Kathmandu Cycle City 2020”, we installed a bicycle stand in Durbargmarg, Kathmandu in front of Hotel Annapurna’s gate. This is the first ever bicycle stand on a public space which accommodates up to 10 bicycles at a time.

Cycling in Kathmandu has become a popular trend, but we don’t have proper infrastructure to park our bicycles. Frankly, people are getting sick of finding a pole or tree every time they have to park their bikes! Even in the parking lot in big shopping malls, cyclists are shown the corners to stash their bikes. We are hoping that cycle stands on public spaces like this will boost the morale of a common cyclist and encourage them to “Ride with Pride”.

We have designed the front part of bicycle stand resembling the shape of a car, written on it is “1 Car = 10 cycles”. As streets of Kathmandu are being expanded because of traffic congestion, we want to deliver a message to both public and policy makers that the bicycle is the future for sustainable urban transportation. Almost a dozen cycle enthusiasts were present to welcome the first ever public bicycle stand on 30th April 2014 morning at 8:30 AM.

We are looking forward to install more cycle stands on heritage sites like Patan Durbar Square and Basantapur Durbar Square. We look forward to get support from the youth to join our campaign of making Kathmandu a cycle friendly city by 2020 AD.
