More about Nikita Lalwani

I am an Engineer by profession & cycling advocate by Heart. 

I have cycled to work for more than 5 years and 80% of my commutes were by cycle only, I still don't own any vehicle. I am also the first Bicycle Mayor from India and one of the firsts in the World and with my global exposure and visits and exchanges to The Netherlands, Germany & other European countries, Brazil and Australia, I have learnt the depth of behavior engagement and how cycling culture can grow holistically in cities, what are the elements and how to bring a sustainable change. 
Bicycle is a simple solution to world's most complex problems- pollution (climate change), congestion and health issues so why not mainstream it ?

Right now scaling Crooze App which stimulates the use of cycling by leveraging the power of communities, rewards, challenges and content to build engagement and continuously motivate people to cycle more and build ecosystem for it to thrive.
Simply, building an internet for cycling for India.
In the next phase, we will be rewarding walking/ running and other sustainable transport modes. and will be working with Smart Cities to promote the use of NMT in citizens.
Other than India, we are also targeting other developing nations across to bring cycling back! 

I am looking for Experienced developers for our tech team and Marketing & Business Development Professionals to grow Crooze App who are fitness enthusiasts also.
