Bicycle is a very efficient mode of transportation; efficient in every manner, whether you talk about it being cost efficient or energy efficient, it works for both the scenarios. Therefore, the increase in utilitarian bicycles would benefit society as well as individuals. Initially, people were reluctant to use bicycles instead of personal vehicle or motorbikes but now the entire picture has changed. People have become more responsible towards the environment and have started using bicycles to commute rather than using heavy vehicles or even personal vehicles. With our previous blogs, we have guided you from choosing the right bikes according to your needs to opting for a proper meal before you take your bicycle out. Every rider needs a customised chart prepared for themselves as their need and purpose are totally different from one another. The personalised choice of bicycles will help the riders to overcome some initial barriers to increased utilitarian cycling, such as lacking sufficient fitness, uncomfortable, long distances, being tired, too much effort, difficulties with trip chaining, shopping and picking up children with the help of their bicycles, but other barriers remained including bad weather, being too busy, lack of time, lack of daylight, inconvenience, too dangerous and too much traffic.
Cycling is seen as a convenient and flexible way of everyday transport that gets you from door to door but still allows you to change route if you feel like it. The activity of cycling is also perceived as fun, and many of the participants talk about the lovely experiences of nature that they have had ‘on the road’. When you cycle, you get to use your body and increase your pulse rate, at the same time as you get fresh air and can “clear your mind”. The effect of this is that you get to work alert and ready to go in the morning, and on the way home, you have time to forget all about the issues at work and come home relaxed and happy. People have also said that cycling has enabled them to do more jobs because they spend less time in traffic and face not so much issue related to parking. They can stop multiple times without thinking about the honking and the traffic that they might have blocked otherwise.
To enhance this practice of using a bicycle to complete multiple tasks on your way, YULU has brought to you Yulu Pause. With Yulu pause, you can now make multiple stops within one ride. And how can you avail the feature? To avail the Pause feature, simply hit Pause on the app, finish your work and resume riding again. It is beneficial for round trips and running errands. The charges for the Pause duration will remain the same as that for a ride with no Pause charges between 6 pm to 9 am. The pause feature comes with brownie points, the charges for the Pause duration will remain the same as that for a ride with no Pause charges between 6 pm to 9 am. Under Pause, the bike is reserved for you and nobody else will be allowed to use it. What else do you want when you know that you don’t have to book another bike if you stop the ride midway to pick some stuff or when you are reminded of some important piece of work midway. The bike stays reserved for you until you decide to end the ride and without any extra charges, isn’t it a Christmas present from Yulu already!
You might ask how it is different from Yulu Keep feature. So, to clarify the same, please take note of the time of the operational hours of both these features. While Yulu Keep allows a rider to keep the bicycle from evening 6o’clock to the next morning till 9 o’clock, Yulu Pause is functional during the same time, but it allows you to make multiple stops in one single ride from 6 o’clock in the evening to 9 o’clock the next morning. This feature has been specially designed by keeping in mind our riders who have jobs which requires them to stop at multiple junctures. With the pause feature, people don’t have to think or even worry about their commutation problems during the late hours of the night. It relieves you from the struggle of finding a proper and safe mode of transportation during the night hours. You can scoot whenever you want to and rest whenever you feel like.
But remember to take care of our bicycles because we have made them with lots of care and love to serve you better. It is also your responsibility to take care of the bikes like us. The rules of all the features have to be taken care of otherwise a penalty of up to INR 1000/- shall be charged, as the bike is assumed to be at risk.
So, wait no more, run errands on your bike while you enjoy your day. Do not forget to wear your helmets and proper outfits to keep yourself warm during the winters as the nights can get a bit colder. Make use of the Yulu Pause feature and enjoy your work without worrying about your working hours anymore!
