Haven't cycled in years looking to get a bike to do a bit of cycling, nothing major just around we're I live, is it good for losing weight. More getting one to knock the laziness off me, as drive everywhere, and would feel this to be a good form of exercise. Any advice on what one do get, don't want reel expensive one.

It doesnt matter if you drive to work or not.Scheme is called cycle to work but there is no one checking this actually happens.

Got my bike in it not quite a mamil yet

Middle aged man in Lycra

Did a few 100km sportives and loved them. Great way to relax and for anyone carryin weight it's the best thing along with swimming as its zero impact. Running is not advisable for the rotund lad or girl.

probably not, just unsure whether to actually sell it or keep it as a training bike for use in the weather we are having now
