You can buy a bike for almost every purpose imaginable but a simple utility, hybrid, or folding bike will still increase your fitness, save you money on fares, and make no negative impact on your environment.
As long as the bike is of good quality, you will only need to keep it clean and check it regularly for signs of wear.
Hybrid bikes, utility bikes, and folding bikes are all dependable machines that are suited to commuting to work or school, day-to-day transport needs, or simply a pleasurable ride in the park or even the countryside.
The Hybrid Bike
Lightweight materials combined with road bike performance and hardy mountain bike technology make hybrid bikes perfect for bumpy urban roads. They are ideal for commuting, family rides, fitness riding, touring, and carrying luggage.
The Utility Bike
Utility bikes are ideal for local commuting and short rides. They are equipped with fat tyres that absorb road bumps but will drag on long journeys, making them hard work to ride and uncomfortable.
The Folding Bike
Ideal for commuters, and for people with little space in which to store a standard bike, folding bikes can go anywhere, especially on public transport. The folded bike can be easily reassembled into a serviceable machine without the use of tools.
Tip: For urban commuting, our suggestion is to use lightweight hybrid. With its head-up, traffic-friendly riding position and easy-to-operate gears, the lightweight hybrid is ideal for urban commuting.
