Do you have a boardwalk near your beach? A nice bike path in your neighborhood park? Then Cruiser bikes are perfect for you.
Before heading out on the trails with your bicycle, make sure that you have the necessary safety gear so that you are safe, visible and protected.
Regardless of being a beginner or advanced rider, when preparing for a recreational bike ride these items are necessary:
Cruiser bicycles are built for comfort and safe recreational biking. If you're a beginner they're a great choice for you. They are heavier in weight and have thicker tires to easily coast over paved paths. As the name implies, cruisers are not built for speed but instead for going for an easy ride and taking in the scenery. In addition to a cruiser bicycle there are other accessories to keep in mind for bike comfort.
While cruiser bikes will give you the most comfortable ride, you can take any type of bike - road, mountain or commuter - on scenic trails. With any bicycle you want to make sure it fits you perfectly before you begin biking. As a beginner this is an important step to a fun and safe bike ride experience. Here are some tips on getting the best bike fit. You can also visit your local beginner-friendly bike shop for further assistance. Find your local expert here. Questions or suggestions?
