They will cover an approx. distance of 12000 kms in 30 days. Their ride was flagged off from Kasaragod, Kerala on October 10, 2018 at 4:00 pm. They were flagged off by The Commissioner of Police, Mangalore City outside his office premises on the October 11, 2018 at 10:30 am.
The recent state of destruction and devastation caused by the floods in Kerala and Coorg in Karnataka prompted them to take up this cause. They plan to create awareness on how the massive floods in the two regions could be prevented by planting more trees. They will be delivering talks at programmes and will distribute 2,000 wrist-bands with a message, ”Plant Trees, Prevent Floods.”
From Mangaluru, they plan to travel to Goa, Mumbai, Gujarat, New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Kolkata, Chennai, flood-ravaged areas in Thrissur and Waynad (Kerala), Kodagu and will be back to Mangaluru. They are currently in North East India and have covered Nepal.
The riders will focus on spreading the message of the importance of afforestation, which will prevent soil erosion, there by preventing landslides which are associated with heavy rains cause floods.
