Sorry to say it's a terrible time to want to buy. You'll really struggle to find anything in the low to mid range currently. I've read most bikes between £200 - £800 are on back order until August.

You're only real chance of getting something is the 2nd hand market. It seems there are government plans to give out 50 quid vouchers to help get old bikes back on the road. This could help at your local bike shop if you manage to find one.

I don't want to dishearten you, it's great so many people want to start riding bikes again. My friend sold his for 50 quid last week a 2011 btwin. That gives you an idea of the sort of price you can expect to pay.

The good thing is if you do find a bike in your local area you'll at least be able to look it over and give it a test ride to see if it fits you.

That's a lot more than can you do at most bike shops these days.

Good luck with trying to get a test ride honestly wouldn’t say in these times that’s likely, no harm in asking I suppose.

Bring wipes and gel

I suppose you're right, if people are all after a bike the seller isn't going to be interested in accommodation of requests like test rides.

Any more info on this. I'm scared to ride my bike in case the gears or brakes explode. I would really like them adjusted first by somebody who know what they're doing.
