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

Cycle with gear needs regular maintenance and its also won’t fit in your budget of 5k. So you can simply go for a gearless cycle. I will prefer scooty for a distance of 12kms for me, but again its not in your range.

I was 19 and I used to travel 6km up and down, trust me you will sweat a lot and so can’t be good. Some people were discussing about humidity, and I was in Mysore which is one of the nicest places in India.

It’s better to take a electric vehicle, I think it doesn’t need any  license. Please search for alternative options.

I think you can opt for a different mode of transport other than a cycle. Maybe a electric cycle. 

Its both, good for your health and for the enviornment👍🏼.

Why in India we don’t have leisure bicycle as seen in Europe? Easy riding straight sitting stance with raised handle. Instead we have fwd leaning wrist n back breaking sports stance bicycles and ironically we suck at bicycle sports.

Figured this could help folks who are looking to Ride to Work – not necessarily answering the 2-year old question.


You can buy a Btwin Riverside aluminum cycle or even an MTB. I occasionally ride to work, around 21 km from home – from Malad to Mahim – but fortunately, I have a shower in the office. 

Factors to consider: 

1. Safe place to park your cycle in the office vicinity

2. Safe riding conditions (if it’s early in the morning, use lights)

3. Fixed timings will be a plus if you know when you’ll be back.

4. Riding in the monsoons will be challenge

5. Added investment for cycling gear (helmet, gloves, bibs, jerseys etc.)

Pros:

1. No fuel costs

2. You can treat yourself to a nice snack at the end of the ride

3. Community support

4. You don’t really have to follow traffic signals in small junctions. You’ll save a lot of time.

5. Option to walk with your bike on the pavement in traffic jams

Hope these observations help!

Go for a cycle, if traffic is not the problem. Otherwise, it could get very sweaty, especially if you are planning to go to college or the office.
