The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) is all set to organize a cycle challenge, aimed at being the longest single cycle line parade and an attempt to break a Guinness World record. The challenge will take place on Sunday at the service lane near Gautam Buddha University, Yamuna Expressway, Greater Noida to mark and celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the paramilitary force.
Below is the invite, take a look:
The official Twitter handle of CISF also posted an invite of the same, stating that they will be trying to break the Guinness World Record in celebration of their 50th year of excellence in securing the Nation's assets.
Interestingly, the longest single line bicycles parade (moving) is of 1,235 participants and was achieved by Hubballi Bicycle Club (India) at Hubballi, Karnataka, India on 26 January 2019 - this Republic Day - and the event was aimed at promoting respect towards cyclists on the roads.
And so one can say that it would be quite fascinating to see the CISF break the record originally held by the country itself.
The CISF is highly active when it comes to the sports field, and is often seen conducting such events or taking part in them. Recently, personnel from CISF Contingent at EOI, Kathmandu, Nepal participated in 4th COAS Open Marathon and Run for Fun 2019 held at Army Ground, who at the end were also felicitated.
Take a look:
The CISF came into being in 1969 to provide integrated security cover to the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) which, in those years, occupied the commanding heights of the economy. In a span of four decades, the Force has grown several folds to reach one lakh forty-eight thousand and three hundred seventy-one personnel currently.
The paramilitary force is currently providing security cover to nuclear installations, space establishments, airports, seaports, power plants, sensitive Government buildings and ever heritage monuments. Among the important responsibilities recently entrusted to the CISF are the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, VIP Security, Disaster Management and establishment of a Formed Police Unit (FPU) of the UN at Haiti.
