What type of bike?
Hello everyone this is my first post so fingers crossed it's in the right place. So I've decided to start doing abit of riding but I don't know what type of bike would suit my needs most and wanted some advice from you guys please... I'm 23 and I've not done much riding before just the odd time at most on my old mtb. I go to a boxing club about 10 miles away from my house 3-4 times a week and thought I could start riding it rather than driving it. I don't know if this matters but I would be riding with a back pack on most of the time and I would also on occasion use my bike along the beach front which is a sort of cobbled surface. I was looking at the B'twin triban 3 but was then told due to..1) being new to riding. 2) carrying a bag and 3) wanted to ride on other surfaces other than tarmac that I might be better off with a sports hybrid. could anyone help please I'm a completely new to this. Many thanks, John.
