Due to the massive hike (or rather, lack of discount) in the systemOne tickets this year (they went from £360 to over £1,100!) I'm looking to instead take up cycling, get a little healthier, and save some money in the process.
I already lift five days a week and do cardio, so the ~10 mile daily ride won't phase me after the first few days (I hope). That said, is it a road bike I should be looking at? My journey will be almost completely flat road for the duration, save one or two slight inclines/declines along the way.
I've never been on a road bike before, if that makes a difference; but I used to cycle on mountain, crossover, and BMX bikes all the time.
Also, what kind of lock setup should I be looking at? A chap I know who is well up on his cycling told me I should be looking into both a D-lock and a cable lock. What do you think?
Have you been tested?
