Picking The Right Bike
Biking is a fabulous form of exercise.
I enjoy it and I know others do too. I would highly recommend biking to those who may be seeking an alternative to running. It's certainly easier on our joints and muscles.
If you are looking at purchasing a bike, check out this article from Jen Murphy in the Wall Street Journal. She consulted with a bike expert to lay out the different types of bikes one can purchase. The jargon can get a little confusing, so take time to research your bike purchase.
There are a few good reasons to spend time on your homework before making a bike purchase. First, if you're going to invest in a good bike, it's not cheap (the old adage "you get what you pay for" is most applicable in buying a bike). Second, you want to purchase the bike that will best fit the type of riding you'll do. This Wall Street Journal article will help sort that out for you.
