Getting Started

Bikes are fun. That’s it, that’s all you need to know. Okay, perhaps there are a few more things but the point is, that you should never lose sight of the fact that getting out on your bike is fun and that’s why we do it. In the Getting Started section, we have some great information on the various types of bicycles to help you chose which one is right for you.

Our Cycling Guides section has some tremendous content on a wide range of cycling topics, such as help on which bike is right for you, what to wear when your cycling and then a whole host of guides on cycling tools, finance, cycle insurance, food & drink, training & fitness and plenty more too.

We also have a whole section dedicated to Reports, in which we take a look at UK Cycling habits with regard to commuting and how this compares to other forms of transport. These are in-depth articles based on UK Census data and are available in the Travel to Work Reports section.
