Ride bicycle Delhi! Rent at Metro stations & be a peddler

Remember the good old days when you were a kid leaving your home with bicycle at  5. Then going each one of your friends home calling them aloud and continuously ringing the bell until they came out to play. Finally when your friends came, you have a bicycle race from end to another of your locality, to win you peddle hard and hard and even if you don’t win you still feel cheerful and enjoyed that moment. That’s the most precious and relaxing  part of your childhood that you always remember but as you grow up these things left behind in today’s busy life.

Cycling with friends

Cycling is very rejuvenating, perfect for all age groups as it is an easiest and ideal way to get more active and healthier. It makes you young, active, happy and it is perfect to enjoy morning and evening. But you can still live that time by cycling again for those who haven’t done cycling from long time this piece is for you only.

Imagine roaming in Delhi on bicycle enjoying the weather experiencing the eternal fun with your friends. This thing happened to me once I was at  Vishwa Vidalaya  metro station and wanted to go Kamla Nagar for some work but what happened  me and my friends  were  not able to hire any rickshaw then we saw a “rent a bicycle” kiosks outside the station we do had some rough idea  about this facility  then I thought it was the best time to give it a go and as well as we got lucky weather at that time was perfect and we hired  bicycles at minimal rate then each one of us took bicycles, put our bags on the baskets and then we sit on the bicycle then the problem came we couldn’t  able to ride it, seriously we couldn’t !! we laughed at each other face hardly to our situation because it has been long time that none of us touched a bicycle then it’s the time to pull up the socks, we tried two-three times and start balancing slowly and then the fun starts we start to compete with each other remember in ‘dil dhadakne do’  Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh  competing with each other. We beat the traffic and reached to our destination in short time and that happiness of travelling on bicycle changed my routine, from that day instead of hiring rickshaw I use only bicycle to travel short distance but in case of scorching heat it is better to a hire one.

Timings for renting bicycles at Delhi metro stations:

Rent charges pricing for renting Bicycles in Delhi:

10 Rs for 4 hours and some place it is extra 10 for more than 4 hour and at some place it is 2 Rs per extra hour.

And when you are at vishwa vidhalya you will see there are 20-25 bicycles all taken by students and you will be disappointed many times as at the peak hour you won’t see any bicycles so better come early to grab yours and also You may have seen foreigners riding on bicycles in Connaught place so next time when you go hire one from Patel Chowk metro station and enjoy. You can also hire bicycles at India gate it is more fun there in wide and minimal traffic roads especially in the morning it is audacious and even more you can even join Delhi cycling club for more activities and fun.
