Lemiride a bike rental aggregator platform, launched in Goa on January 26. The launch was synchronised in 18 cities. In Goa a networking session was held at Dona Paula. It was attended by stakeholders from various travel related ventures. Lemiride is promoted by entrepreneurs Preetesh Rane, and Chirayu Mishra, who aim to cater to two types of customers, individuals who rent for travel and others who rent to commute within cities.
Preetesh Rane, founder said, “Lemiride is my dream project, an idea that I have been nurturing since I started traveling. I rented a bike on first solo trip from Ahmedabad to Kutch and the bike stopped due to low fuel. I was flabbergasted by the experience. Over the next six years, I traveled 22 states across India renting bikes in most of these places experiencing the business first hand.”
Co founder Chirayu Mishra said, “Lemiride is a platform for people who share the same passion for travel as the entire team. We want to be a go to brand for people wanting to experience the world differently.”
