Okay I'm gonna be honest, I'm a newbie to cycling and I've took on the challenge of riding from Leicester to Paris. It's in August and I'm doing it for charity so I hope my training till then will pay-off. Because once the day comes there's no going back!
Anyway I don't have a bike yet (lol?) and I want something reliable, built to last the event and much more (as I intend on taking up cycling - commuting everyday) and need something that's worth the money. My budget is around £300/400. I've been searching everywhere and have begun to understand bits and bobs about what I should be looking for.
But with the event creeping up on me, can you guys help me out?
And bikes in mind, models, price range, or 2nd hand bikes for sale?
