While many women find that women’s-specific bikes suit them, many others also get on fine with unisex bikes. Road bikes are designed for speed and distance capabilities on the road, and have lightweight frames, thin tyres and handlebars with a drop that enables you to take a more aerodynamic position on the bike. Some road bikes are designed with a focus on endurance and comfort, others for speed. These are perfect if you want to cover greater distances, explore the countryside or are planning doing a bike race or other on-road event. Mountain bikes are designed for off-road use, and have flat handlebars and wide, knobbly tyres. Mountain bikes usually have suspension which helps smooth out rough terrain, either just at the front in the forks (these are called ‘hardtails’) or with both front and rear suspension (‘full-suspension’ bikes). Mountain bikes are perfect for exploring trail centres, natural trails and bike parks, giving an exhilarating ride that develops fitness and skill. Hybrid bikes, sometimes also known as urban bikes, commuter bikes or city bikes, usually sit somewhere between road and mountain bikes in their design. They typically have flat handlebars and an upright riding position that’s makes it easy to keep an eye on your surroundings when riding in traffic. They may have either a road-style frame that’s lightweight with a focus on speed and agility, or a mountain bike-style frame that’s designed to handle rough roads, canal paths or fire roads, and may have some front suspension. Hybrid bikes also have lugs that allow you to attach mudguards (fenders), pannier racks and child seats.
