The range of ladies racing bikes is as extensive as those available for male racers. Manufacturers have realised that there is just as much demand for ladies cycles, as cycles designed specifically for men or for unisex cycles. Women feel the need to have a bike designed specifically with their needs in mind.
Whether you require a mountain bike, triathlon/time trial bike or an urban bike, manufacturers including Avanti, Orbea, Ridley and Scott all have designed and produced a range of bikes primarily for women.
There is a wide variety of cheap womens bicycles online. The prices start as low as approximately £380 to as high as £1200.
A mountain bike is specifically designed for off-road cycling. It is designed to withstand the pressures and obstacles that off-road cycling brings. Manufacturers such as Scott have produced mountain bikes specifically designed for women.
Urban bikes are most suitable for road and light off road. They are both durable and pacey. Manufacturers including Scott, design urban bikes specifically for women.
Triathlon/time trial bikes are racing bikes, which are aerodynamically designed to enable the bike to travel as fast as possible. These bikes can be purchased readymade or can be individually tailored to fit a specific racer. As time trial racing becomes more popular, manufacturers design bikes specifically for both men and women.
Cycling whether in a professional capacity or just as a hobby, for women, has become increasingly popular and bike manufacturers, including Avanti, Orbea and Ridley have started to fulfil this niche market for ladies cycles.
