Women's Bikes - By Class

We have a great range of women's bikes at Cycle Heaven - specially filtered here for your convenience.

We also have a great team of women working here too - who will be more than happy to share their diverse cycling knowledge garnered from years of experience. Whether that be commuting, shopping, carrying little ones, triathlon or epic transcontinental adventures - they've done it all.

By 'women's' bikes, we mean three different types of frame shape that have traditionally been popular with, or marketed to women. Men can ride them too, just as women can ride anything else that we sell.

One frame type is women's specific geometry - which generally involves a bike with a crossbar. Usually these are designed with proportions that are such as to suit people with longer legs and shorter torsos (more common, apparently, with women than with  men). However, some are just available in smaller sizes than the so-called 'men's equivalent. Practically all of the performance bikes and some of the recreational bikes are like this. 

Another, is the traditional 'lady's bike - with a low, 'step-thru' frame which is easy to get on and off and very handy if you carry a lot of luggage or a child seat. Most of the utility bikes and some of the recreational bikes are like this.

Finally, there is the in-between dropped crossbar style (sometimes called a mixte), which gives a sportier and more contemporary look than the step-thru, but will still allow you to ride in a skirt. Most of these are recreational bikes.

Check out the different types here.

All our bikes come with one year's free servicing and two weeks free insurance!

Happy to help... Julie, Ellie and Ali - some of the women in our team.
