I've been commuting 10 minutes to work and back every day for the past year, and I want to step up my cycling and do more of it both for fun and for cycling 40-60 minutes to the city centre, as well as occasional longer rides.
My current bike is the absolute cheapest that I could find, and it has fallen apart and no longer do the gears work and one brake is faulty.
This is a list of what I found. My budget is ~£500
I want a hybrid bike for sure. I will mainly use it on the road but also sometimes doing light trails and such so I don't want a pure road bike.
I hope to use it for fitness as well as commuting and travelling to the centre, hoping to completely eliminate my usage of the bus!
All advice is welcome! Thank you.
