hello :)

hello all

I have a seperate post running just getting some final advice on which bike to buy

I am (will be) new to riding outside!

I am a 26 yr old female. Attend high intensity spin classes 3-4 times a week but now want to ditch those and get outside!

I considered road bikes, but have decided on a hybrid (road type) due to the roads i will be cycling on (commuting and weekend"exploring").

I am fully aware of that cycling outside will be a completely different experience and challenge!!

After advice for starting out. Have heard that the first few cycles are the worst and to stick with it! Once i get used to my bike and improve fitness outside i will enjoy? how many times would you say?

Any advice for starting out and staying safe will be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance and i look forward to speak to you all more in the future

You might want to check out the Commuting forum. They can help answer any questions you have about commuting for the first time.
