Did you know – India is the third-largest consumer of bicycles in the world? Cycling in India has gained immense popularity, especially post-lockdown. In 2020, the cycle market in India witnessed a growth it didn’t over the last two decades.
Though some are using cycles to commute between work and home due to the risk of contracting the Virus, others are choosing it to stay fit. To your surprise, women’s bicycles share one-third of the market value in India.
How are Women Cycles Different From Men?
Women are naturally different from men. And in many ways. In general, women tend to be shorter than men. They have smaller hands and narrow shoulders, shorter torso, and longer legs as compared to men.
Keeping these general physical attributes in mind, the same bicycle for men might not be as comfortable for female riders as it would be for men. Women-specific bikes are designed keeping these features in mind. Cycles for women have shorter frames, narrow handlebars, and softer saddles, apart from easy-to-reach brake levers. Do these facts tempt you to begin cycling? Read our list of best cycles for women in India.
