If you’re new to the biking world, consider what kind of bike will best suit your needs, whether it’s an electric, mountain, hybrid, or road bike. Understanding the difference between these types of bikes is going to help you choose what’s right for you.  Pro tip: Check out the Pros Closet to try a used bike before you fully commit to buying something brand new.

If you’re a DIY kind of biker and you’re looking for a customized bike that is completely unique to you, it’s time to be Frankenstein and build your very own monster. Buy a frame from a former bike and get new tires and wheels that will keep you moving and grooving across the trails. For smooth starting and stopping, pick up some new brakes, handlebars, and pedals.

Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean you can stop protecting yourself from the sun, so get yourself some sun protection sleeves and caps. You’ll also want to make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes that aren’t going to cause chafing. Get a pair of fitted bike shorts that won’t move in uncomfortable ways when you’re on the bike. 
Finally, do not forget your safety gear. Pick up a helmet, cycling gloves, a pair of biking shoes, and some comfortable socks that won’t leave you feeling uncomfortable.
