We caught up with Shweta Kandhari who is an aspiring Vegan and animal activist from Dubai and has recently moved to Hiranandani, Powai. She is eager to explore Powai and has shared her first Yulu bike ride experience which she and her brother undertook.
Shweta's Opinion about YULU Bikes
A super convenient and affordable way of transportation option to get you around the community. With the ongoing efforts of encouraging a pollution-free and health-conscious environment, Yulu promotes easement of commute for the young and old alike. Starting from locating pickup points to accessing the bikes and being able to use the Yulu bike app, it was a breeze. Super user friendly (and pet friendly with an available front basket that lets you hoard stuff along with your pup for them to enjoy a ride along too!) with adjustable seats, various bike sizes, it was quite adjusting for anyone to ride on it.
And most importantly, the bikes were well maintained and sanitized (our top priorities these days), placed in reachable and equipped locations.
All in all, a smart rental initiative for people who fancy cycling around to reach places with no hassles.
1. What need came up that you had to hire a YULU bike and not some other commute?
More than need, it was recreational. An evening activity or a ride along with the community, exploring the nature and aesthetics of the place was promising. Plus, always a healthier option for people who prefer to stay active.
2. Is riding the bike safe and easy?
Starting from locating pickup points to accessing the bikes and being able to use the yulu bike app, it was a breeze. Super user friendly with an available front basket to hoard your things and adjustable seats, various bike sizes, it was quite adjusting for anyone to ride on it. For the young and old alike.
3. What is the process of hiring the bike?
The yulu bike app lets you conveniently book the cycle at the nearest pickup point. All you have to do is scan the QR code on the bike from the app which unlocks the cycle. Once returned to any of the yulu stations, simply end the ride and pay through your phone.
