30 January 2022, Today Sarmang Adventure Tours started a unique drive to provide free to use bicycle air pumps at various locations on the outskirts of Dehradun.
Many times when cyclists go for a long ride face the problem of cycle puncture or lack of air pressure in the tyre. While it's easy to find a shop in the city, when you are on the outskirts, the cyclists have only the option to drag the cycle to the city or call someone for help. To solve this issue of cyclists, Sarmang Adventure Tours started a unique drive to provide bicycle air pumps at various locations on the outskirts of Dehradun, the pumps will be available for free use at the local tea shops on the outskirts of Dehradun.
The first pump is provided at a tea shop in Kesarwala, Madevta Road in the Raipur area of Dehradun. Maldevta is a hub for runners and cyclists. Cyclists are seen all the time on this road. The pump is available from 5:30 am till 8:30 pm. While filling the air the cyclist may sip hot tea and help the local tea vendor in earning his living.
The cyclists of doon appreciated this initiative and shared that it's not easy to carry a big pump all the time, however, few cyclists carry a mini pump for an emergency but it takes longer to air the cycle with the miniature pump.
The other shortlisted locations for this drive are Kimadi, Sahanshahi and Dwara village which are the favourite destinations for cyclists of doon.
At present we are targeting to provide the air pumps at 10 different locations of Dehradun said Anil Mohan, Founder of Sarmang Adventure Tours.
