Rolling Wheels


An initiative by GRR, aims at motivating people to choose Cycle to Work, to prefer Fitness as a form of Recreation rather than gadgets and to Save the Environment and make it Greener and Cleaner. It is the brain child of GRR Founder, Director and Chief Mentor, Siddarth Choudhary who is an Ultra Endurance Athlete known for his exceptional feat at The Great India Run 2016, Running 1480km from Delhi to Mumbai in 19 days.

Let's not sit huddled indoors complaining about the rising pollution levels and actually show how eco friendly measures could be used to combat it, says Siddarth.
