Please suggest me a cycle

Hell everyone

Please suggest me a cycle for 12km daily up & down for office.

Age – 26 years.


Location of office is not suit me a metro
Bus is not stopping here in bus stand, waiting time is around an hour on bus stand (plus not safe in corona time)
Bike, i don’t have license and i haven’t learned yet, how to drive.

So cycle is the only option, looking for me.
Renting cycle are looking costly as 10rs per hour for a 10 hours around daily


@androgame

Looking on Flipkart as i have  5k voucher from 2500 coins.

Stop taking free advice from inexperienced people.
12kms to and fro is not at all long. It’s very moderate distance.
If you are from a humid city, better your office has showers. Else you will stink and it’s not advisable to go by cycle.
Meanwhile order cycle and get riding experience with it. Couple of weeks later u can ride gearless scooty as well. Then u can use scooty during summer and cycle the rest of seasons.
6kms hardly take 25mins for me with moderate traffic.
Buy a hybrid cycle of maybe btwin, montra, firefox.”

12km is too much to cycle. You must learn a gearless scooter which is easy. Then buy an Activa/Jupiter and get the license.

Some other guy said he cycle 15km daily, so i thought its not too much and posted here.

If its too much, then i have to look for some other solutions

Will you cycle 12km in summer? 4-5km on cycle is okay. 12km is too much.
Try to get LL and learn Scooty,

for people saying 12 Km is a lot a day, it is not, i cycle 35-40 Km everyday, without being tired
however if u ride in India, you need to make sure your office has a shower,because you will sweat
if there are no slopes on your way, you can go for a simple bike without gears, you can have gears added later on too once you progress

I cycle 20 Kms per day at once.. Not to office though

So it won’t be an issue for a 26 year guy.

It’s one of the best ideas you have thought of!

cycling 10km is not the problem..but please understand and check the safety aspect..observe the road while you are travelling in the bus and asses how safe to ride. Also, do consider the times of cycling too..You should cycle when there is ample light for you to be visible to motorists. You should be more careful and extra cautious and make yourself visible than expecting other motorists to notice you. talk to someone already riding on that route in your office and take their guidance.

You can check yourself over the weekend or holidays with a rental bike. Just go to office and come back after a small break at the office and see if that’s doable..You will take 1-2 hours instead of taking 10hours during regular days.

At the age of 26, 12Km’s is easily doable unless you have been raised on Pizza’s, Burgers and smoking your lungs out !!
However, I would like you to think about the route you would be taking, traffic/safety and various other factors like arrieving ‘fresh’ at the office, how would you manage during summer and rainy season etc.

With all those checks and balances if you think a bicycle makes sense, do check out HERO LECTRO (e-cycle) series or invest in a non geared scooter.

6 km one side is a doable thing and depends onntrafic it may take up to 25 – 40 mins
Also it is a good life habit to keep you healthy.
Also you can think of electric cycle like hero lectro incase if you don’t want to pedal for a while
Also getting a bath while reaching office is advised as for sure you will be sweating and stinking

I bought a cycle in July month during lockdown for morning exercise. I bought a very basic , plain looking cycle “MILTON” exact copy of BTWIN basic (decathlon) just for ₹4000. And first 3 days I couldn’t ride more than 5-6km, but within a week now I ride 15-20km very easily. sunglasses And I am 32, 85kg, 5’10". Lost 2 kg also.

A lot of MNC’s do…
India Bulls Centre in Mumbai – where a lot of major companies have their offices – do have showers/bathrooms..
Many companies have Gyms as well, so they do need showers – as after workouts people may like to comeback to work..
