Bicycles are on sale at some bicycle shops.

Before schools resume, battery bikes have been sold well.

The bicycle trading had been slow in previous months, however, as of May, it has started increasing and especially battery bicycles have been sold better.

“The sale was terribly bad in previous months. But it has steadily increased back from the beginning of May, it may be due to the approaching school reopening season. This month’s sale has been good. Generally in monsoon, the bicycle market has been slow to some extent.  But based on the last year’s experience, the market has never come to a halt, just encountered a slowdown,” said owner of JoeZ Bike bicycle trading.

Probably, restriction on motorcycle ride led to an increase in battery bicycle sale as manual bike sale has declined, he said.

“The use of bicycle has been larger. We can see more and more battery bicycles in the community. Battery bicycle can make human convenient, not faster like motorcycle but it can go farther. We also prefer to use bicycle. Battery bikes can run by both battery and pedalling. As far as I know, there are two kinds of markets- used and new bicycle. Some buy used bicycle and some buy new bicycle and customize it. I am one of those who ride bicycle after customizations,” said U Myint Naing who owns a battery bicycle from Thingangyun township.
