Remember when you would bike everywhere when you were young? This not only kept you in shape, but it was also a ton of fun. With the nice weather we’re going to be having for the next several months, you should go to the market, coffee shop, or out to lunch on your bike. Maybe you want to cruise your way to the barbershop or hit up the gym. Wherever you want to go, a bike will get you there.
Springtime is great to be out and cruising on your bike. You’ll save a lot of money on gas but you’ll also feel like a kid again.
Cruise in style with these bikes:
A beach cruiser is a bicycle with wide handles, an upright seat, and big tires. Though the bikes tend to have only one speed, and are not made for rough terrain, they are very comfortable to ride and are normally used on the beach.
The beach cruiser is modeled after the traditional bikes seen all over America from the 1930’s until the 1950’s. The modern beach cruisers are light-weight and are trending. It’s also the official bike of Southern California.
They come in many different colors and styles and prices range from $150 to $500 depending on how fancy you want it.
A lowrider bicycle is a customized bike with a long wheelbase and stylings that are modeled after lowrider cars. They come with banana seats, a sissy bar, and ape-hanger handlebars.
Depending on your style, they come with chrome or gold spoked wheels. The customization depends on your style and how far you want to go. With a lowrider bike you ride in style wherever you are going. Sometimes you might not be riding anywhere but are just enjoying your bike.
Price ranges for these bikes are between $200 and $500.

If you’re really serious about your bike riding you might consider a road bike. These bikes have many speeds and allow you to travel far distances. These are good if you live far from the beach and still want to ride your bike there.
