Women's Recreational Bikes

For open road adventures - big and small

Recreational cycling can be anything from a jaunt out for a pub lunch to a globetrotting cycle tour.  As a result, this category spans quite a broad range of bikes. What both types of trip have in common is that they are done for pleasure, with no element of competition involved. Most of the bikes here will be 'hybrids' of some sort in that they sit on a continuum between light and fast performance bikes and slow and steady utility bikes. If you are looking to own just one bike and therefore seeking one that does everything - perhaps combining commuting with some rides out into the country, then you'll probably end up with one of these.

At the perfomance end, bikes will be very light, with a more forward and sporty riding position (sports hybrids). As befits a more sporty bike, most, but not all of these bikes will be un-equipped, though you can still opt to fit parts such as rack and mudguards as extras. Most of these will feature a 'women's geometry' - that is bikes that are proportioned to fit women's, rather than men's bodies, but will still have a crossbar. However, proportionate geometry generally assumes longer legs relative to a shorter torso, which might not always be the case. If you don't fit that description, try a 'standard' version if it exists. The Cannondale Quick bikes are like this.

At the utility end, the bikes will be better equipped and more upright (comfort hybrids) - with  some virtually indistinguisable from town bikes - except for derailleur gears. Derailleurs have the advantage of being lighter and offering a much wider ratio than hub gears, allowing you to tackle much steeper hills and to pedal harder on the flat, which suits the more diverse range of terrain that you likely to encounter on open road adventures. These comfort models usually feature the tradtional 'women's' frames with a step through design (Gazelle) or a lowered crossbar (Ridgeback).
