‘Cyclology’ has been educated in Class III and IV of RSM Experimental and CC Shah School in the first stage. The program is devised by BYCS, an Amsterdam-based social venture that functions to promote biking, Sarvajanik Education Society (SES) and Nature Club Surat (NCS).
An initiative under SMC’s’Cycle4Change Challenge’, the topic is a 10-hour program, novels of that have been printed in Gujarati, Hindi and English that is dispersed among pupils after colleges reopen.
