Ride to Serve India!
Pedal Force Kochi (PFK), a nonprofit making, non political social service association based in Thripunithura (Kochi) was founded in December 2017 focusing to promote bicycles as an alternative mode of transportation for local commuting & Relaxed Touring and we have NO branches anywhere. Cycle riders are helping to save our environment, reducing the use of oil consumption and also contributing to the economic prosperity of our country because they are using the force of pedal, not any fuel or electricity to move on
The lack of suitable tracks and roads on the highways are the main roadblock for bicycle commuting. Poor and rich people in many countries made cycle as there part of life for daily commuting but we are throwing the humble bicycle at around the age of 15 and switching to cars and bikes is a disappointment. Continues and unwanted use of fossil fuels and motor vehicles surely affect the sustainability of our country and we should shift to green mode of transportation as much as possible. Making these points in mind, we maid a team to deliver these messages to the public and started our first campaign ride on 10th December 2017 named “The Save Planet Ride 2017”
Over the years, Pedal Force Kochi (PFK) did a lot of exclusive projects to develop Kerala a cycling friendly state and also organized a strike to construct dedicated cycle tracks on the highways in the state which was not tried by anyone but we done it in a different and professional way and got the results. I am highly obliged to every one who supported and associated with Pedal Force and looking forward to make Kerala the No 1 cycling friendly state in India. Thank you & Best Wishes. Joby Raju, Founder Chairman, PFK
