Getting around in Mysore: Scooter and Bicycle Renting for Travellers

Getting around in Mysore: Scooter and Bicycle Renting for Travellers

If you’re planning to come to Mysore and learn yoga, you will have definitely considered the question “How do I get around in Mysore?” And if you’re a woman, maybe you’re even worried. Commuting to your Shala in the wee hours everyday can be especially scary. You may now and then hire an auto rikshaw; but you’ll soon realize that it won’t work. You’ll need independence and something more economical.

Bicycle and scooter renting is the most popular choice of the yoga community here. They are simple, inexpensive and you’ll not need to depend on anyone.

So how do you go about renting a bicycle or a scooter? Right now, the whole renting process is very informal. Most students network over Facebook groups like Mysore Yoga Community, Ashtanga Community in Mysore and Mysore Yoga Lakshmipuram. Locals are more than willing to help. It really helps to be a part of these communities.

Apart from Facebook, there are other sources you may consider; for example, few RTO (Regional Transport Office) authorized firms providing scooter rental services. They have pick – up and drop services, online booking, 24 X 7 customer care and they even provide you with helmets.

I’ve listed out a couple of such services below:
