Rent A Bicycle And Feel The Joy Of Dodging Traffic In The City

Rini posted on 11 July

For those days when one is highly motivated to ditch the car or the motorbike, a bicycle is a great option. There are so many perks in cycling. To begin with, it’s the best way to dodge traffic. If that’s not your style and you want it just to feel the wind in your hair or to get a little fit, that is fine too. But most of us don’t want to jump into the commitment of investing on one, so here’s where  we would rent our bikes from. And ensure you have your ID and address proofs, before you venture into renting.

Rentomo

For those who would rather pre-plan their bike ride, you can book one at Rentomo from your home or work and rent it out for a day or more. While instant booking may not be there for all, the website provides the availability details. Working with lenders who are ready to offer their bicycles for rent, you can avail them at almost every part of the city. But be warned – the specifics of the rental may vary from one lender to another. So while some may ask for deposits, others may not. You can even get your kid along for your ride since they rent out cycles for kids as well.

ICycle

ICycle has two categories of bicycles – Betta and Parvath (the pricier and fancier ones) – so that you can choose the one you need, based on what you want to do (for mountain biking, pick Parvath, of course). If it’s not a solo ride, and it’s for your whole squad, then you can even order in bulk. While you can book them online, you have to go pick it up and return it from their location. In case you are too lazy and have cash to spare, you can get them to deliver or pick it up at an added cost.

Pedals And Wheels

From road bikes to mountain bikes, they have got them all. Targeting campers and trekkers, bicycles are just one of the items they give out on rent. So for all your long distant cycling, Pedals and Wheels should be on top  of your list.

Bums On The Saddle

A C-Commerce (Cycle E-Commerce, duh!) venture that promotes cycling, Bums On The Saddle not only offers rental service, but also presents a great platform to interact with like minded people. They unite lenders and renters on their website, where you can choose from various options.

RentOnGo

If luck is on your side, you will find a bicycle on rent here. Due to popular demand, they seem to run out of the unique bicycles here.. So once you’ve got your eye on a particular bike, select it, enquire with the owner and you could get your rented bike at your doorstep. Or you could pick it up. They even have an app that could let you rent a cycle at your fingertips.

Rent2Cash

Yet another platform where you can find a bike for rent is Rent2Cash. More of a professinal lend-borrow system, the website provides contact details of someone in your locality, who will lend you their bike.

City Cycling

Choose between mountain terrain bikes and hybrid bikes, leave a request for rental or book them online, and you can start packing for your cycling trip. You have to pick it up and return it to their store, since they don’t provide a delivery service.

HWY Rider

All you need is a glimpse at the website’s gallery to get you booking a bicycle online, to set out on an exploration of your own. They offer only Firefox Target 21 and Btwin Rockrider 340 bicycles but that’s good enough to conquer the city, we think. You can rent them out for an entire month in advance.
