23 October 2013 Last updated at 10:31 BST

As the Queen's Baton Relay journeys around the Commonwealth, BBC presenter Mark Beaumont met a group of cyclists in Bangladesh hoping to change the face of commuting.

In our second special report from the relay, Mark joined the arrival celebrations in Dhaka as the baton received a warm welcome in the capital city.

Dhaka is one of the world's most densely populated and congested areas.

Mark met a group of enthusiasts from BDcyclists who have grown from a handful of students to 25,000 members.

They now have an ambition to create Dhaka's first cycling lanes.
