In the past, bicycles were considered vehicles for the poor. However, nowadays, cycling is seen in connection with health and the environment. It may be due to the lack of public awareness about the need to ride a bicycle that some people start cycling only after they find out that they have diseases like heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes, etc. That too according to the doctor's advice. Since the bicycle is an environmentally friendly means of transportation, people who are aware of health and the environment are not only using bicycles, but they are also spreading awareness that everyone in society should use bicycles. One part of this is 'Tour De' Pokhara'.
Overall, the purpose of Tour The Pokhara is to inspire people to use bicycles, to help develop Gandak Province, which is very beautiful, and scenic, and has immense potential for tourism, as a tourist destination through bicycles in the world.
