Mauritius: Bike sales in decline on the island

 The sales of bicycle in Mauritius have fallen sharply over the past two years and it is not the approach of Christmas that should reverse the trend.
This sharp decline is thus explained by the fact that most young people today are more interested in phones, tablet PCs and other electronic games than traditional bikes yet sold at competitive prices, as indicated by the Le Défi Quotidien newspaper.
"Previously, parents already booked them since the beginning of November for their children, especially if they were confident that they would succeed in their exams. But that is not the case now, for laptops and tablet computers are gaining more and more ground, "says one of the manager of specialised store.
According to the professionals of the sector in Mauritius, bikes purchases on the island will be around 21 December this year
