Garage based startups are a cliche. At BumsOnTheSaddle, we decided to reach for the sky and opened shop on the roof :)
The bike shop on the roof top!
It’s been a cozy biking space for many a biker over the last 5 years or so. The small setup with it’s motherly mango and raintree’s were a perfect platform that witnessed the re-birth of many a cyclist and many an initiative to make Bangalore the cycling capital of India that it is today.
Yup, we did make a massive difference in this space and we are proud to shout that out. From rooftops even.
It’s time to take it to the next level, literally.
The new BOTS is the one place which can host it all – the one place that we want to re-define cycling with.
The one place that every biker can call home.
The one place that can convert even the staunchest-paunchiest non-cyclist into a gear-inch-sprouting cyclist.
So, here goes…
(Toast) To an interesting biking space called BumsOnTheSaddle – wishing every cyclist the very best. Go ahead use it well! (/Toast)

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.
I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.
