5 Of The Best Bikes For Every Type Of Rider

As the weather warms up, we’re going to look for any reason to go outside. And there’s no reason why you should stay cooped up indoors when you could be enjoying the fresh air. In fact, WHO recommends 30-minutes of activity a day to keep both physically and mentally healthy, and the Canadian Government encourages spending time outdoors so long as you’re not feeling ill and keep a safe distance away from those outside your immediate household. 

If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy nature and squeeze in some exercise — solo or with your housemates — a bike might be the perfect accessory for you. And while a bike can be a pretty big investment, it’s one that’s worth the spend. Especially if you’re able to find an affordable option that offers quality and looks great, too.

Enter Reid Bikes.

Founded in Australia, Reid Bikes started as just that: a brand that offers value, style, and quality as an alternative to some of the pricier brands on the market. Not to mention, they’re on a mission to give back to the earth. For each bike they sell, they’ll plant one tree.

Now over 10 years later, you can find Reid Bikes in stores across Canada, including shops like Ride Away, Mojo, Riders Cycle & Board, and Cyclemania in Toronto and Ride On and Bikes For All in Vancouver. From commuters and nature lovers to bike enthusiasts, athletes, and beyond, Reid Bikes has a bicycle for every type of rider.
