Awrighty righty? So I've been thinking about getting myself a bike for getting back and forward from work at night and I was taking a look at Halfords. For a decent man's bike seems to be £100 - £200. I'm not whinging about the prices, I haven't cycled since I was about 12 but is there any chance that any of you know of a better place to take a look? I understand that you get what you pay for, I'm alright with that and I expect to be using this thing 4-5 days a week for a couple of miles each day so I don't want something that's going to fall apart beneath me like I'm in a cartoon. I'm 6 ft and about 17 stone too, so sturdy is obviously good. Actually planning to do this in the hopes of shifting the weight I've put on since last Summer. Right now I'm either driving everywhere or getting the bus. I've not been running in ages and I am going to the gym but it's a miserable place to be, in my opinion, and I'd prefer to go out and do something a bit hands-on so I thought I'd start the cycling. Also: a hybrid bike - is that my best bet for cycling through town? They seem to be the most sturdy, mixture of mountain and road bike. Any advice would be appreciated, just to perk my confidence up about the whole thing.
