Gone are the long, grey evenings of winter, giving us the excuse to hibernate indoors. Maybe we’ve seen the same four walls of the gym for the past few months, or perhaps we’ve shunned exercise altogether.
Either way, it’s time to get back on the saddle! Summer’s just around the corner and there’s no better time to find your perfect pair of wheels.
With the launch of seventeen new women’s bikes this week, we’re proud to update our range with brighter, lighter and more comfortable models.
Our bestselling Carrera Vengeance has been updated with a wider saddle for increased comfort, but retains all the features you know and love. Tackle rough terrain easily on large 27.5” wheels, with a suspension fork for effortless transition onto smoother ground. You’ll find it in a choice of two stylish colours to keep your tyres on trend.
For those just starting out, the Carrera Zelos is a great beginner’s road bike, made with a lightweight aluminium frame and a strong steel fork to put you in control. Confidence is key when you’re new to the road, and with combined brake and gear levers you’ll find it responds well and is easy to handle.
If you’re looking for more of an all-rounder, a hybrid model may be better suited for you. Get the most out of both your commute and leisure time with the Apollo Virtue Women’s Bike. With a plush saddle aligned with women’s geometry for a comfortable ride, and a lightweight aluminium frame for speed, the Virtue is a perfect harmony of components for the start-up cyclist.
Another thing to consider when taking up cycling is the community benefit; cycling can be a brilliant social activity! Breeze is the biggest programme ever to get more women riding for fun and fitness. They coordinate rides from 3 miles to 30+ miles, for all ages and abilities, with a friendly and supportive network of members. Head to their website to find out more, where you’ll find information on how to sign up, stories from inspirational women, along with tips and advice.
