Cyclethon

The Physical Fitness and Recreational Club, SCMS-NOIDA organized a cycling event in collaboration with Fit India on 21st February 2021 where the participants had to cover as many kilometers as they can. It aimed at highlighting the importance of cycling in our day to day lives, and how one can stay healthy in an economical way, which is impactful for the environment as well as for themselves. This was a virtual event hosted on the Strava app where the participants cycled in their locality ensuring social distancing.

A mail regarding the event was sent to all the batches on 9th February 2021, subsequent to which constant reminders were sent to the students and rigorous marketing was done to promote the event. The club also organized a webinar on 18th February to assist the students and resolve any kind of queries they had regarding the event. This webinar helped the participants to register and participate in the event in a hassle-free manner. 

As on 19th February, the event received a total of 100 staggering registrations with students from all the batches. On the day of the event, riders actively peddled and an enthusiastic response was recorded on the app. Top three winners who covered the highest distance and all participants who covered 10 kms received e-certificates from Fit India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India and SCMS Noida jointly.
