THE SJOBA- AVON CYCLO MANIA
A Green Initiative ... was a resounding success with over 300 participants from all across the Tri City taking to it, like fish to water.
The first of its kind, event organized by SJOBA & sponsored by AVON was a hit with all age groups. The response was so overwhelming that we had to refuse entries, keeping in mind the logistic limitations.
The event not just promoted a Green & Clean Environment but also aimed at encouraging cycling as a preferred mode of commute in the city.
The participants had to solve cleverly crafted clues pointing to different locations in the city & then cycle to the spot, click a selfie & send it to the game coordinator. From where they would receive the next clue.
The locations included St.Johns School, Japanese Garden, Student Centre, Smriti Upvan, Shanti Kunj, Blood Bank Centre, PGI, Aroma.
A few clues created by OB Vivek Sood, the game coordinator, for you to test your wits...
A scent or a whiff could ring a bell
Or is it an odour, one just can't tell
Some may even term it as a smell
Hunger pangs, here one can quell
Surrounded by varied fields of high education
Hangout for some, others visit for recreation
Good food, fun activity, games & conversation
Landmark of the city, a very popular location
बाग बगीचा वाटिका या उद्यान
यादों का यह एक अजब स्थान
हर वृक्ष किसी को देता सम्मान
पर कितनो को है इसका संज्ञान
Divided into islands by a natural stream
If you call it a copse it won't be extreme
Calm and tranquil like a peaceful dream
Is not a place where one should scream
The top 5 teams won themselves Avon Cycles while 15 other teams won cash prizes. Hampers by MilkFed were given as consolidation prizes to 10 teams.
What made the event even more intriguing & innovative was that the format conformed with all social distancing norms with no physical contact of any sort.
