I personally believe that everyone should learn how to ride a bike. It is quite easy and once you have learned how to do it, you will never forget it. I’ve learned how to ride one as a kid and I can still remember my first pink bike with a basket on the front where I carried my favourite doll whenever I went. And even today, whenever I think about that bike, it brings nothing but happy memories from my childhood.
But my passion for bikes didn’t stop there. Even today bicycling is a present activity in my life. It is so convenient that I use my bike to complete a variety of errands – take my boys to school, small grocery shopping sprees and similar. Lots of people ride bikes for a variety of reasons. I ride mine because it offers many health benefits – it helps me stay fit, as well as save money on gas. So, if you are looking for an effective way to improve your health while being able to put money aside, I recommend you to start biking.
For that, you will first need to invest in a bike. As you can see on the picture above, I have a ladies road bike, which is the model for multiple pavement uses including commuting and long-distance rides. If you’re looking for ladies road bike for sale, you will find out these usually come with lightweight drop-bar handlebars that curve downward. This is a great feature that helps me transfer energy efficiently into making the bike move forward. Moreover, this type of bike allows for a bigger variety of hand positions than bikes with flat bars.
You may be thinking: “Do I really need a bike specially designed for ladies? Can’t I just grab my husband’s bike?” Well, if you have no other option, you can. But the thing is that a bike designed for females will make your ride more comfortable as it is created with parts that make contact points less hard for females. Such parts include narrower bars, shallower drops, slimmer grips and shorter cranks.
In addition to looking for ladies road bike for sale, you should also take a look at the other models to find out if there is something that fits your specific needs better. For example, if you are looking for adventures, you may want to take a look at mountain bikes which are best for rugged trails and gravel roads.
If you have kids, don’t forget to teach them how to bike too as this is a valuable skill that they will certainly need in life. One of my boys’ favourite activities in fact is when the four of us go to the park together on our bikes. It is the perfect way to spend some quality time together and have fun.
