Tips and Considerations for Buying Your First Bike

I am an indoor cycling instructor and Master Trainer for ICG/Life Fitness and I help people fall in love again with cycling – indoors and out. I cannot tell you the number of times a grown adult has approached me and said they would love to come to my cycling class but are afraid. I am pleased to say that I have a lot of recreational riders, serious cyclists, and bike racers/triathletes that attend my classes. Indoor cycling classes are great because no one can ever fall off, get lost, or be left behind. And because of that, many of my riders have rediscovered the love of riding and with that, look to ride outdoors. Photo by Coen van de Broek on Unsplash
