Getting hold of a bike has never been easier!
Most bike shops sell second-hand, refurbished bikes, as well as new. If you feel you can’t afford one, then there are charitable organisations that can help. Bikes are being recycled, refurbished and rehomed all the time.
If you want to try before you buy, you can borrow one for a trial period. Or if you fancy a day out in the countryside, hire a bike for the day or take a tour with an experienced guide.
