preloved bikes will make you go the distance

Since the London 2012 Olympics and the subsequent Rio 2016 Olympics, cycling has become a really big sport. It’s always been popular, but the last few years have seen tens of thousands of amateur and wannabe cyclists taking to their bikes. From road cycling, mountain biking and velodromes, to a pootle around the park, exploring woodlands, moors or the countless miles of UK cycle tracks, there is plenty in this country to discover and two wheels is one of the best, and healthiest ways, to do it.

Cycling is an amazing form of exercise; it’s good for your body, health and mental wellbeing too. Cycling burns loads of calories, and of course the faster or harder you cycle the more calories you will burn. It is an effective combination of both cardiovascular exercise (aerobic to work your heart and lungs) and endurance/muscle toning exercise (anaerobic to strengthen joints and tone muscles). Plus, cycling regularly can help to reduce your risk of major illnesses such as cancer, stroke and heart disease. Cycling is classed as a low impact exercise, which means it doesn’t cause the same level of wear, tear and traumatic impact on hips, knees and feet compared with other forms of exercise, such as running.

However, you might be put off from getting a bike as they can be really pricey brand new. Don’t let this stop you in your cycle tracks as thanks to Cash Converters, it doesn’t have to be anywhere near as expensive a sport to enjoy as you might think. At Cash Converters we have a huge range of preloved bikes, ranging in price, specification and size. You’ll find there’s something for all the family, so you can really enjoy the great outdoors together, whenever you wish.

So, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of buying your bike second hand:

  • Choose to purchase a preloved bike and you will get more for your money and a higher specification model than if you were to buy brand new.
  • There’s just as good a choice of preloved bikes available than if you were to shop brand new. From road bikes to mountain bikes, kids’ bikes to vintage-style shoppers. You never know what’s going to be waiting for you until you look!
  • Upscale and trade up. By choosing to purchase a preloved bike first, you then have the option to change your bike if you really get into it. If you have only bought something cheap and cheerful, and then decide you want to get a bit more professional, there’s no worry about losing much money.
  • Finally, it’s not just the bike you need to buy. It’s all the bits of gear to go with it too. You can pick up all this preloved equipment at a great price, so you can look like a pro – on a budget!
