We’ve been present in Pune for over two years, and we’ve learnt bucket loads – running high quality bike shops in a new city, creating cycling communities from scratch, managing inspired teams across multiple locations and building processes to maintain the level of rider experience we desire.

What Does This Mean for our Customers in Pune

We aim to support all purchases with the help of local service partners while warranty & support will be handled by our capable e-commerce team who continue to support a volume of cyclists across India.

We continue to build a strong web presence (http://bumsonthesaddle.com) with the goal of being able to cater to your every cycling need from the comfort of your home. We would love to continue being your goto bike shop via our e-commerce platform.

What Does This Mean for the Company

While it’s sad to say goodbye, we’re eager to refocus and continue working on projects that will impact cycling across India through our bike shops in Bangalore; and our Distribution and E-commerce effort.

We’re super proud of the community that has rallied around BOTS Pune; the close ties we have made and the cycling we have inspired.

Thank you! We loved Pune city. The large-hearted people, fantastic food, phenomenal riding and an opportunity for us to create new cyclists! Thank you for being a part of our journey and for supporting the business.

Ride on.
