Im Jo, im in the UK, and used to love cycling as a kid so I think its time to get back in the saddle and start riding again. I want to primarily use a bike for commuting to and from work which is 3 miles each way - one of which I currently walk to lose the pounds, but feel cycling would be quicker and mean 6 miles of exercise a day.
Ive been looking for a bike online but dont really know what to look for. I rode mountain bikes as a kid, but wonder if a road bike would be better since my route would be primarily on roads, and any extra cycling I do would probably be road based too. Id love to train to get good enough to compete in triathlons too, ive recently taken up running (on the couch to 5k programme) and will be swimming again soon (my sport of choice - I was a total water baby and love the freedom).
Should I stick to what I know or is it worth going for a road bike?
