Here's an opportunity to discover what pedalling can do for you. On February 26, professional cyclists will vie for honour while thousands of amateurs will pedal for fun. Called the “BSA Hercules Chennai Cycling 2012”, this city ride promises to be one of the biggest in South India.

The Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu (SDAT) has extended its support to this event, which seeks to promote the ideals of “healthy living, sport and sustainable means of transport” and help “United Way of Chennai”, an NGO that works at improving the skills of the under-privileged and the physically-challenged.
