Greetings! My friend and I had an awesome three-week adventure on bikes in Myanmar December of 2016. We couldn't have done it without help from Bikers Bike Shop in Mandalay, Myanmar. The owner rented us hybrid/mountain bikes and racks for our journey at a very reasonable rate (so we didn't have to purchase bikes in Bangkok and fly them over). We were also able to purchase helmets and bike tools, and able to resell them to him if un-used, or at a discounted price if used. Overall, he was incredibly accommodating, and has lots of experience and connections in the road biking and bike touring community in Myanmar. His advice on our route, lodging, cultural information, and safety was indispensable. He is a Myanmar national, but has worked abroad, and was very easy to communicate with him in English. Would highly recommend checking out this bike shop for advice and supplies if heading to Myanmar.
Bikers Bike Shop
37th Street, Between 76th and 77th Street
The shop is located centrally in Mandalay, and on a street with a few other bike shops (including Bianchi).
