At RCE we pride ourselves on making everyone feel welcome – whether they’re new to the sport or have been riding for years, male or female, racing snake or "fat lad (or lass) at the back", have a budget of £500 or £5000. The cycling world can be baffling with it’s own language and technical terms. We cut through the jargon and clearly explain what you need to know to choose the bike that’s right for you. If you're not sure about something, just ask - there are no stupid questions.
