A well maintained bike can significantly improve your ride experience. We have passionate technicians who will fix your bike using the right tools, processes and our vast experience.
There are many reasons to ride a bike. If it is to become fitter and faster our professionally tailored plans will get you there. The plans are custom designed as per your cycling goals and are backed by personal sessions. Gokul also falls back on his 'love for running' to add variety to the plans.

BHEL is one of those last remaining little green oxygen pockets in the city. The tree covers, lack of multistoried building and adundance of open space make the area pleasantly different from the surrounding areas. Riding inside is always refreshing and exciting.

Hyderabad is blessed to have some great backroads to ride on, and the weather is just about perfect for them. So let's try some of them this Sunday.

For people interested, it is possible to convert this ride to a century tide by taking a detour towards Shadnagar and back.

Bike Tour : Ride The Mae Hong Son Hills
Mae Hong Son district is tucked away in the remote north west corner, in a scenic mountainous region of Thailand, known for its spectacular views. We had our first tour in that region last month, and it was truly out of the world. Here is one more chance to ride the Mae Hong Son hills before the season ends. The route takes you up and over mountains, quaint little villages, through forests and across bridges for its entire 620 km length. With butter smooth tarmac, sparse traffic,stunning scenery and khao soi ( talk about Thai cuisine!) to die for this is dream cycling holiday. But only if you have the legs for some serious climbing !
Bike Tour : Discovering Northern Thailand
Northern Thailand, bordering Laos and Myanmar (Burma), is known for its thickly forested mountains inhabited by several hill tribes, each with its own language and culture. Our journey will explore a route that starts from the Lanna Kingdom of Chiang Mai, passes through the countryside and the orchards on the way to Tha Ton before meeting the mighty Mekong River; we pass through The fabled Golden Triangle where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos all converge, and together with the Mekong help form the border between these three Buddhist neighbours. For many , the boat cruise from Thaton and Chaing Rai on river Kok could well be the highlight of the trip.

Astr Sidewinder - Uday's Experience
It's been an year of riding the Merida road bike. I'm starting to think that instead of just sticking to one bike, I'd have to ride other bikes occasionally to get to know them and feel the difference. My activity included daily commuting to work, random evening solo rides, and occasional weekend rides with TBA. I was doing all of this on the same bike, and crossed the 5000 km mark this month.

Q&A With Prajwal Pingali, Winner, BBCh U-18 XCO
"The climbs were steep and really bumpy, I almost wanted to stop beside the trail and rest mid-race due to the pain. The descends were just as bumpy as they were on slick road slabs. There were points at which I couldn't process the speed at which I was moving."
The Saddle Library
When we look at a new bike, the conversion always revolves about the frame, wheels and groupset, and the modest saddle is hardly ever part of any discussion. However, as one starts spending more time on the bike , the importance of the ‘right saddle’ can become annoyingly evident. Numbness around the soft tissues, chafing and pain around the seat bone areas are some of the most common complaint we come across. ...
The Magical Konkan Ride

If you are new to cycling and looking for bikes, suggestions, gear, community and planned rides The Bike Affair (TBA) is the place to go in Hyderabad. TBA's efforts over the years for the growth of cycling in Hyderabad are appreciable and unmatched. Lakshmi Karthik Kudaravalli
The team at Bike Affair is focused on building a community first and selling the bike is what happens in the process. It is never the other way around. Have been to other stores in the city too and everyone else is looking to make a sale and that is their #1 goal. Nothing wrong with that but what Bike Affair is trying to do is pure passion and what they get from people is faithful patronage. They do have fun and try their best to make sure you love your bike and biking experience regardless of whether you buy a bike from them or not. Highly recommend this place! Singdha Karthikeyan
This has been my go-to place for bike service and components over the last 2 years. Krish, Gokul and the staff are all passionate about riding themselves and it shows in the interactions. They've built a strong community of cyclists in Hyderabad. I highly recommend them - whether its buying a bike, bike services, apparel, group rides or just hanging out and watching the classics at the store :) Akhil Sehgal
