Cycling roads in Delhi

Respected Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, Shri Narendra Modi, Mr. Manish Sisodia,
Pollution problem in Delhi is at an all-time high, and now is the time when we need to encourage the use of pollution-free transportation like bicycles. Following are few suggestions on how this could be done by :
- Having dedicated lanes for cyclists and making sure that bikes and other vehicles do not enter the lane. AND/OR
- Reserving some roads for cyclists for a specific time (like limited hours of morning and evening times on weekdays).
These incentives would encourage more people to adopt cycling as there means of transport.
There are only namesake cycling roads in Delhi, like MG road but it's all covered with parked cars and extended shops, this is evident when we navigate to any place using google maps, the option of traveling via cycle is disabled.
Already steps like cycles for rent are in place, but roads are not safe for cyclists. Cyclists in Delhi are increasing and if given encouragement this would not only help fight the pollution problem but improve the health of people.
Whichever action is taken for improving cycling, that has to accompany a solid implementation so that efforts are not in vain, these actions must ensure that roads meant for cyclists are used only by them and not other motor vehicles.
Please take an urgent action on this.
