Hyderabad's cycling club, dubbed as Relief Riders, which began on April 30, now has over 100 volunteers. Ever since a helpline number of this organisation has been put up online last week, requests have been pouring in.

This initiative was started on April 30th, with support from a handful of like-minded friends and active cyclists. The number of volunteers in the group increased to 100 members over the weekend. The initiative was initially started with the idea of delivering medicines to elderly people. Still, this has gone up to the extent where volunteers are arranging oxygen cylinders, blood plasma units, emergency drugs, and even ICU beds. Most of the volunteers are IT employees and cyclists, who are running errands in their free time. With more volunteers joining in, the organisation is now planning to expand by adding food and other essentials, which can be delivered on cycle.

Members of the organisation say that they are thrilled to be getting the kind of response they are getting from elderly people, given that they weren't sure of the reaction they would get when they first launched the initiative. Based on the locality mentioned in the requests they get, any volunteer can request if it falls within his five-kilometre radius. Currently, requests are being accepted between 6 AM and 9 AM and from 6 PM to 9 PM.

At least 70 calls are being received by the group every day, where requested for hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, emergency drugs, blood plasma, and food, etc., are pouring in.
