Mazatlan cruise ship tourist keep bike rental shop open


Since the arrival of VBIKE, the rental business of these bicycles had to be updated, in order to beat the competition and remain in force in the market.

Mazatlan , Sinaloa .- Despite the arrival of the “Muévete Chido” program that brought with it the installation of the VBIKE throughout the Malecón de Mazatlán and part of the Historic Center, the bike rental businesses have been kept alive and this is thanks the tours they offer and the different models that adapt to all the ages and needs .

Hilda, a provider of bike rental services, said that although public green bikes are priced at 20 pesos journey lasting two hours and theirs hover between 60 and 200 pesos, the care and comfort of models offered It does not compare, that’s why tourists who arrive on cruise ships and their fixed clients, prefer them.

Clients choose what’s best for them when they come for bicycles, we have from tricycles for children to bicycles for professionals who practice cycling. There is something for everyone, the cheapest 60 pesos for the smallest children and 200 the thinnest and most resistant ones.


She pointed out that the locals usually go to her shop on weekends, especially during the school period, instead of during the week and if the cruise factor is added, the tourists look for the guided tours they offer.

She added that a feature that has allowed them to survive the competition of green bicycles, is the personalized service and assistance, since each client is provided with a map with points of interest and an emergency phone in case their bike suffer some damage in the way, with this they give them immediate attention and they replace them by another model if necessary.
