Luxury Bicycles: Kids don't ride their bikes to ensure that they are getting enough cardio training or aerobics! It is all about having fun. So, if you are interested in rediscovering a way to exercise without feeling like a hamster on a contraption, bicycling may be an activity that could be a palatable way of working out.

There are bicycles on the market today for riders on all levels that are amazingly easy to operate. These bikes are lightweight and have multiple gears, shock absorbers, and comfortable seats. There are several types of bikes such as road, mountain, hybrid, comfort, and cruiser.

A top-notch road bike is for the seasoned enthusiast who is in search of finding their inner Lance Armstrong ever time they go riding. Mountain bikes are for the extreme sportsmen, too, perhaps an aspiring X-Games athlete would be capable of fully utilizing the special features built into a top-of-the-line mountain bike. While having more than less is generally preferred, it is not going to make much difference to neophyte riders.

The upscale comfort and hybrid models are ideal for both newcomers to riding as well as adults rediscovering the joys of bicycling. Additionally, the high-end models for experienced cyclist may cost several thousand dollars, whereas high-end hybrids or comfort models aren't as pricey. It is better to trade up when a rider is truly capable of utilizing the full range of features. Trading up is an option that is always available. Go to a cycling shop for the best selection and information. The follow-up maintenance required to ensure the bike is always safe is another good reason to go to a specialty shop.

The pearls of wisdom dug up for this report came from counseling received from Dunbar's Cyclery, which is located in Wilmington, Del. The exemplary customer service conveyed by the owner of the shop led me to purchasing two bicycles on the spot.

However-if you are married or have a significant other in the household-it is always wiser to come home with two new luxe toys than just one. That's an article for another day.

Personal Experience

Since I am an adult experiencing the coming of my second childhood while pedaling off unwanted calories, I am riding a comfort-class Raleigh Venture 4.0 for now. The gear ratio on this bike literally turns mountains into molehills once you master shifting gears. It is an absolutely amazing feeling to pedal up a dauntingly steep hill almost effortlessly. I have ridden over bumps that made me cringe in anticipation of jolts that never reached my seat. I am already reading up on Raleigh's performance hybrid models for my next "Tour de Store" shopping spree.

Visit www.RaleighUSA.com to see all the manufacturer's great bikes. Drop in at www.DunbarsCyclery.com to view a full-service bike shop in action.
