The bicycle is disappearing from the immediate lives of middle class residents in Delhi. It is no longer a vehicle of transport, of leisure or romance as it was in the sixties. Even as roads are choked, urban transport systems are promoting automobiles. The capital's roads are not friendly to the cyclist. There are no bicycle tracks even though the bicycle causes zero pollution, is healthy, low cost and sustainable. The documentary profiles two green heroes who use the bicycle exclusively as a mode of transport.
