I’ve been riding a bike all of my life and it’s always been one of my favorite pastimes. I really believe it’s an itch you develop as a young child, and once you have the riding itch it’s something you never let go. I love the feeling of the wind in my hair and the cool breeze on my skin as I pedal down my favorite trails. Perhaps the best part about riding a bicycle is that you’re never too old to start. My wife wasn’t the avid bike rider that I was when we first got together, but she has since grown to love our rides together as much as I do.
It’s become obvious to me over the last couple of years that my current bicycle is reaching the end of its lifecycle and it’s time to consider purchasing a new one. I’ve certainly taken my time with the process (yes, I have been stalling for the last two years), but recent developments with my bicycle have pushed up my time frame to the point that it’s time to make a decision now. As I began looking around seriously for a new bike I realized just how many different types of bikes there are and what an important decision it was for me. That’s when I decided to put together this site to help others learn from the information I’ve gathered together on all of the different types of bicycles out there.
There really are lots of different bicycles to choose from depending on whether you like to ride on mountain trails, if you prefer riding on the road, if you like a casual ride along the beach, or if you do most of your riding in an urban environment. On this site we review all of these different types of bicycles and we also take a look at kid’s bikes as well, for the parents out there. It’s my sincere hope that these articles make your decision a lot simpler than mine has been.
