Entry in cycling

Hi All 

 

 

I am wanting to give cycling a try due to to the current restrictions around gyms and other organised exercise sessions.

 

I would like to get an absolutely basic set up for  start , as I have no idea on how to pedal anything with more than one gear or even how to maintain a bicycle . Its easier to learn and make mistakes on cheap stuff .

 

I live around the corner from Summit cycles in Crowthorne (Midrand) , but I dont think I am their target market right now.

 

I know I need  a helmet and a bike at the very least . From reading a bit on this forum , I am guessing I should look for a mountain bike instead of road bike . 

 

Anything else I should add to that list and anything specific to a bike ?

When I was in you position I got lucky. Someone referred me to Summit Cycles in Midrand and it has been one best of the pieces of advice I got.

 

Go and talk to Anton. If you are a cyclist or an aspiring cyclist he will help you with advice, with getting onto the right bike and with your riding.

 

Just do it.
