Those who enjoy exploring different terrains on bikes can rejoice. Cafe Rides, a new enterprise allows you to rent luxury bikes to various destinations. Started by three friends- Sanish Rajappan, Alok Nath and Jithu Joseph, this Kochi-based company wants to emphasis on improving tourism and safe riding.
“We want to give a boost to tourism in Kerala with help of bike tourism and we are glad that the government has given us permission to use the KTDC logo for the same,” says Sanish Rajappan, one of the owners of the venture. These childhood friends who got separated after 12th were pursuing individual careers before they came together to start a business. “After a lot of discussion, we decided to go with this idea. We felt like Kerala needed something of this sort to boost its tourism and make people explore new terrains here. It is already a common feature of tourism in Goa, Karnataka and North India. So, why not Kerala, we thought.”
