The weather is just about perfect to begin a full season of biking. Current world affairs make riding a bike environmentally correct, financially satisfying and the secret to a healthy mind and body...One of the most common inquiries I get from visitors to my bike commuting tips site is: "What bike should I get?" And the response I usually make is just what the reporter on this story did: visit a trusted local bike shop and consult with the staff. Selecting the right bike is very subjective. The experienced staff at a bike shop can advise prospective bicyclists on the most appropriate ride, after consulting on the buyer's needs, tastes, budget, abilities, and expected travel distance.
More than 100 years (after the first popular wave of bicycling), the bike is again going to step up onto the podium of popular choice as fuel costs, automobile prices, rising insurance and pollution curb this driving nation. Bike designers seem to have been anticipating the demand with designs that are efficient, comfortable and durable, as well as being eye-appealing.
