This review article will talk about the Best Ladies Cycle in India along with their pricing details. I have made a list of Top 10 bicycles that the Indian women would love to ride. These cycles have been shortlisted basis their features, build quality and Price.
The overall winner of my reviews was the Mach City iBike 7 Gear bicycle for Women. It is attractively priced around Rs. 10,000 mark and is not very expensive if you look at the overall build quality and the features it offers.
Alternately, you can also consider this great option by Decathlon. This bicycle is available in two sizes. You can easily find out which one works best for you by clicking on the “Find your Size” button next to the dropdown menu where you select the bike size.

Simple and efficient is how I will define the Atlas Ultimate City Diva cycle for ladies. The sky blue colour looks really cool and classy. There are no over the top graphics on the bike and looks very minimalistic.
The ride quality is good as well. The handlebars are raised and provide you with a good & comfortable riding posture. You will need to install mudguards if you plan to ride it daily to commute.
The bicycle was priced between 7 to 8 thousand rupees at the time of writing this article. Use the link below to check the latest price online.

This is by far the most traditional looking bicycle in the list. The top bar of the frame is really low and should help women who are still trying to learn to ride.

The ride is very comfortable. You will also find it extremely easy to get down on your feet
