GOA: Despite long duty hours amid the Covid-19 pandemic, a team of Vasco police personnel have been leading the way to keeping fit by cycling together at least four to five times a week.
Sub-inspector Nikhil Palekar, head constable Santosh Bhatkar, and constables Gourish Satardekar and Sachin Bandekar ride around 15-20km from Vasco police station to locations like St Jacinto island and the Dabolim airport. They are sometimes joined by Vasco police inspector Nilesh Rane, and are encouraging more cops to take to the activity.
“When Covid-19 was spreading, there was a lot of talk about building immunity and eating healthy. It was then that we thought of reviving cycling to make the process of keeping fit an enjoyable one,” they said.
