Get cycling with road bikes for men and women from Amazon.co.uk
Cycling has really taken off in recent years, so when it comes to choosing the right bike there’s plenty of choice out there.
For those who yearn to be free, there’s nothing better than zooming off on your own two wheels. Whether winding your way between cars in the city, or racing off down the open road, we’ve put together a great selection of affordable and good quality road bikes for you to choose from.
For a durable and tough bike, look for quality components and a strong frame. Bear in mind that a lightweight bike will usually be better quality than its heavier counterparts, and this is usually reflected in the price. A steel frame combined with alloy components (such as brakes and rims) are usually a sign of a bike that will wear well.
For a stylish option, look for traditional Dutch or English style bikes. These are great for flat surfaces and family days out, and are available with or without a front basket and bell.
If you’re planning to ride your bike on busy roads, it’s a good idea to browse Amazon.co.uk’s selection of helmets and safety gear. Finally, check whether the bike comes fully assembled, or will need to be put together once it arrives. Most assembly jobs shouldn’t be too complicated, but scan the reviews to see how previous customers reviewed the bike.
