6 Places to Buy & Repair Bicycles in 2022.

By Janani Vithanage

With the Sri Lankan fuel crisis still in full swing, with the nearest petrol shipments being weeks away, our lives remain disrupted. Things as simple and everyday as going to work, attending school or college and visiting friends and family have become almost impossible, especially as even public transport has been crippled by the prolonged fuel shortages. We have only one option available to us: the bicycle. Until a few months ago, a bicycle was simply a tool for recreation or keeping fit, but has now become not only a necessity, but a luxury. 

If you’re looking for a place to buy a new bicycle, or even to repair and service the old bicycle that’s been lying unused in your garage for years, you may find this list useful.
