If you’re already bored of walking around nearby streets and running just isn’t for you, then it can feel like you’re not making the most of your daily allowance of outdoor time.
The coronavirus lockdown has meant that most of us are now working from home, spending downtime at home and only socialising at home, so really enjoying our time outside is now more important than ever.
Which is why now is the perfect time to invest in a bike: to feel the breeze whip through your hair and the sun warm your face, as you pedal much further and faster than you could walk.
A bike means you can explore the farther-flung areas of your neighbourhood while also getting your heart rate going.
Alternatively, enjoy a leisurely meander through woodlands at a slower pace, taking in the dewy spring air and wildlife as you go.
Either way, we’ve rounded up the best bikes under £200.
