Recreation

 
Refreshment of one's mind or body after work through activity that amuses or stimulates.

Green is for getting out and re-creating yourself in the fresh air and sunshine. Products in this category are suitable for leisurely jaunts or long days in the saddle, sometimes challenging, but never too serious. Bikes score high in this class by being the best ‘jack of all trades’ - being both versatile, fun to ride and useful. If they do well in this class, they should be middling but not bad, in others. The best are good for commuting, day rides and a world tour. See below for our top scoring (4 & 5 star) recreational bikes.
