Urban cycling, errand running, and riding to work or school are some of the easiest ways to develop a new cycling habit and offer their own set of challenges and rewards. As anyone who regularly picks up groceries-by-bike will tell you - there is something truly gratifying about this simple, often mundane task, and running errands by bike can offer door-to-door parking making schlepping things around incredibly fast and easy. Cycling to school or work also have their own set of circumstances, depending on what you need to wear at work and how far you need to go.
Need to be presentable/professional looking at work? Perhaps a bike that has full fenders and a rack. Is where you live too far away from work to cycle the whole way? Maybe a folding bike and a transit pass are in your future. Or is cheap and cheerful, simple and bulletproof more your speed? Options exist.
With those things in mind, here are a handful of bicycles available this season that we feel offer a little something for everyone and every budget.
