Ranbir Kapoor is our candidate for the face of Cycle Chalao Andolan. For short distances, the actor prefers to pedal to the destination rather than hop into his car.
He has different bicycles at his Juhu residence, but the one he loves the most is a Dahon foldable cycle, which he carries with him everywhere these days.
A source recently spotted RK with what looked like broken parts of a cycle. A closer look revealed that it was a foldable one. Of late, the actor has started lugging around the cycle whenever he's shooting in the city.
Ranbir's new mode of transportation is so compact that it can be loaded into his car and then joined together when he reaches the set.
During the shoot of Rockstar, Imtiaz Ali saw the cycle and was very impressed with its functionality.
RK owns two such cycles. He finds that besides being eco-friendly, they also double up as a means to having a super cardio workout anytime, anywhere.
The actor's father Rishi Kapoor confirms, "He has several kinds of cycles lying all over, but right now, I can see a red coloured 2 seater Audi R8 in front of me, and I want to ask him where in Mumbai he will drive this."
