Got about £100 to spend, need shoes, and shorts and pedals, what is most important. Also now I seem to be racing other road bikers on the roads I was wondering where is the best place to find people with similar interests (ie a club or buddy!)


  • You can get shoe and pedal combo's for about £60, leaving £40 to spend on shorts. try I would say shorts are most important.

    As for joining a club, i'd say go for it. You'll always have someone to ride with/race against. try and use the club finder. Or ask in your local bike shop.

  • I was looking for some clothing last night and came across a site called
    They do some real bargains and even do bundles of kit to get you started - the gear looks ok but as i havent actually bought anything from them i couldnt vouch for its quality.

    It might be worth a look though

    Has anyone out there bought anything from this online store and can they vouch for it?

    Pearsons used to do shoe and pedal deals, I got Nike shoes with basic clipless pedals for £40.

    I wouldn't advise buying shoes over the internet. Always go in and try them on .

    Pedestals that are self made tend to crumble as the spotlight fades.
