Bicycle on Rent in Bangalore - A Quick Guide On How To Rent A Bicycle

If you were to be asked about the fondest memory from your childhood, what would be your answer? Mine would surely have to be the first time I learnt how to ride a bicycle. You know, the pretty pink one with a basket in front and four training wheels attached. The "tring" sound of the cycle bell echoing throughout the colony roads and the bruised knees from occasional falls.

Ah.. those were the days! Feeling nostalgic yet? There are very few things in the world that can match the joy of cycling and precisely for that reason, we bring you this list. For the adventurous side of you, for the traffic-hater in Bangalore.

Some Additional Tips to Keep in Mind

Testing the bicycle condition. It is only fair to expect that rented vehicles may not always be in top-notch condition. Before you embark on your ride, make sure you check if it and its components are in working condition or not. It is also recommended to record the condition before and after your ride.
Noting the dealer details. Just like the lender verifies authenticity through your ID, it makes sense that you ask for his details and jot down his contact number in case any problem arises.
Carrying essentials. Some lenders may not provide lock, gear and helmet. So, it is always advisable to keep these essentials handy.
Returning on time. To avoid penalty and other issues, make it a point to return the bike on time in the specified location.

A cycle is eco-friendly, convenient and has that element of adventure associated with it. For narrow cobblestone roads and uneven terrains where a four-wheeler would be a tremendous hassle, a mountain bike is a beautiful alternative. Beautiful, in the real sense, because it helps makes the earth green. Don't keep the thrill waiting. Get out there and explore!
