I am just about to buy a bike through our cycle to work scheme.
I will mainly be cycling on quite hilly roads to work but there are a few tracks that i can also use. I also will be using it while on holiday in the Isle of wight
I am planning on doing the London to Paris bike ride once I have done some training and so want the bike to be suitable for this.
It needs to be able to have panniers on it so I can take my things to work and also for the ride for my day to day things (not all my luggage as this is transported by a van)
I want to know whether I should get a road bike or hybrid?
I have been looking at the saracen Urban ESC Women's 2010. it says that it is a lightweight one and is closer to a road bike than a mountain bike. Ive then also at the Dawes
Giro 200 2010 and Claud Butler San Remo 2010.
I didnt know whether if i get a road bike I will then be completly limited and unable to use it for the tracks near where i live (not rough just a little stony). But then on the other hand, if i get a hybrid, if it will be too heavy and make things difficult on my cycle to work and for the London to Paris.
Hope you can help
What bike and bike bits should you buy?
