Pedal On: Visit These Mumbai Shops To Get A Bicycle On Rent

Bhavika posted on 20 July


Want to feel the wind in your hair as you cycle past Gateway, or rush past the ruthless runners dotting Bandra’s Carter Road? Don’t fret that you don’t own a bicycle. Mumbai is a city of hustlers, and hustlers always find a way out. Just hit up a few of these shops in the city that give bicycles on rent. See? Easy-peasy-simple-pimple.

Giant Starkenn Cycling World, Khar

Giant Starkenn is one of the best brands when it comes to mountain biking and adventure cycling. They have a showroom in Khar, where you can rent out their cycles as well for as low as INR 300 for the whole day. The only catch? They have only an odd few for rent, so you must call them in advance to book yours.
