7 years back I wanted to change bicycle retail as I did not agree with the way these beautiful life changing machines were doled out. Also, there was an opportunity to share the joy of cycling and build a culture of cycling all across India!
And we did – BumsOnTheSaddle is a testament to this and I am super proud of what we are achieving as BOTS.
We launch BOTS Pune tomorrow – the store is ready, setup and freaking beautiful! This was built for the bikers in Pune and we really hope #BOTSPUNE can make a massive difference to the cycling scene here. It’s our core focus as a cycling company and it’s the reason we are in Pune!
#BOTSPUNE LAUNCH AGENDA
Our launch agenda is pretty simple – have some fun and share BOTS with people who love cycling.
6-6:45PM – Registration for roller races (What’s a roller race?)
6:45PM – Launch (ribbon cutting + party poppers + shouting)
7-8PM – ROLLER RACES
8:15PM – Podium Time (Prizes, Podium time n Glory!)
If you have never attended a roller race, you should watch a race video online. Ours is infinitely cooler though :)
We have a ton of prizes to be won at these races. Do make sure you sign up and be there.
We will be running qualifiers 7PM – 7:45PM where we will select the top 8 riders. These 8 enter a knock-out competition and race against each other till we finally have the Roller Race Champion of Pune! Great bragging rights and tons of goodies from Specialized, Pedros and BOTS to take home! How much better can it be?
We promise this is gonna be a blast! All you need to do is be there and enjoy it.
Cya tomorrow :)
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.
