Another member, Shashibala had a similar experience. She says, "It was a great experience. We have been doing cycle rides and some sports activities on a regular basis but it was yesterday that we decided to take it to one level above. We wanted to cover the whole Noida Extension by riding our cycle and our motive was to spread awareness among the community. There are a lot of women who hesitate to come outside for the ride, we want to motivate them too."
Bawna Gaur, President of the team says, "The SWAG team believes that today's era belongs to women. However, women have always dominated the cultural sphere. Women are showing their presence in every field, be it science, technology, cinema, art, politics or the Olympics. It is under this empowerment that the Super Women Athlete Group (SWAG) has been created."
Gaur further says, "In today's time, pollution and mental stress are some of the most common problems the people are facing. Cycling and sports are such activities which enable us to get rid of both these problems."
