As we approach winter, our summer bikes may no longer be a smart option. The more extreme weather like wind and snow means that our bikes must have what it takes to handle the harsh weather. With approximately 7.5 million people cycling in 2021, we want to make sure everyone gets the best bike for them this winter.  

Before we get into our top bikes for winter riding, there are a number of features that we think are essential for a good winter bike. 

Whilst having all of these features will help you to have a safer – and better time this winter, accidents can still occur so ensuring that you get the best cycle insurance is critical – especially if you are planning on getting one of the following bikes.  

Here are our top 3 bikes that are perfect for winter.

 The cheap and cheerful bike for any keen rider this winter. They say that winter bikes should be cheap and that this is but with its smart hydraulic stopping and ingenious Hy/Rd callipers, this bike will have you performing at the top of your game – even in the wintery conditions. With space available for mudguards, wide tyres and overall durability, this bike is a great investment for this winter’s rides.
