With the weather getting warmer, Spring is the ideal time to get out on your bike. After months of dark mornings and cold nights, blue skies are finally here, and the roads are calling. Unfortunately, choosing the right bike to get active and explore the outdoors is a tough decision to make.

Whether you’re an experienced cyclist looking for a new bike or a complete beginner, our blog will help. At Primera Sports, we are market experts having supplied bikes in Bournemouth and surrounding areas for over 28 years. Read on as we explore the best bikes for cycling this Spring.

Road bikes vs Gravel bikes

The first decision to make is to choose whether you want a road or gravel bike. Gravel bikes are one of the most versatile bike options on the market. Their wider tyres and frame design allows them to tackle all kinds of terrain. From roads to forests, a gravel bike can handle it.

As the name suggests, road bikes are made specifically for road cycling. Although more restricted than a gravel bike, they offer enhanced aerodynamic performance and lightweight frames. This design allows riders to race across roads with more speed and agility.

Read our blog to learn more about the differences between gravel and road bikes. Choosing which one is right for you is largely down to whether you want more of an all-rounder or a specialised speed machine.

At Primera Sports, we stock a wide range of quality women’s and men’s road bikes and gravel bikes. We stock top-of-the-range products such as, Orro Bikes, Merida bikes, and much more.
