THE BICYCLE COUNCILLOR OF GUWAHATI
The Bicycle Councillors are a team of change-makers who will take up leadership roles at the Ward level to promote cycling among all sections of the society. It is an honorary, voluntary and non-political position given by BYCS (Netherlands) to an individual for tenure of 2 years. The Bicycle Councillors will be working closely with the Bicycle Mayor to accomplish the objectives set out by BYCS and the Bicycle Mayor of that city.
Guwahati is the third city after Bengaluru and Mumbai to have Bicycle Councillors. Since this was the first time such an initiative was taken in Guwahati we had received applicants from 19 wards and after a few rounds of scrutiny have found councillors for 9 wards. For the rest of the wards we will start the next phase after a couple of months.

The selection process of Bicycle Ambassadors is also same as the Bicycle Councillors. The best performing Bicycle Ambassadors will get an opportunity to lead their ward after a period of 6 months. During the 1st phase of selection we have selected 3 Bicycle Ambassadors from 3 wards.
