After months of planning and preparation, we’re delighted to announce the launch of the brand new Second Hand Road Bikes website.
Back in the summer of 2016, Matty and Kyle decided that they’d put all of their energies into building a website to help people to find cheap second hand road bikes, so they can get into road cycling, just as these guys had done before them.
They knew what it was like when they started cycling on the road and that was some 13 years ago. Would I like it, would I feel safe and perhaps most of all comfortable.
Spending hundreds of pounds on a new bike, when you don’t know for sure if you’ll even like your new piece of machinery, is a gamble and a big one at that. So the idea for the Second Hand Road Bikes website was born.
So here we are in January 2017 and with thousands of miles of tarmac having been covered, with the website now live and more importantly a wide range of used road bikes for people to choose from, whilst keeping one eye on their pocket at the same!
Over the coming months (and years hopefully!), Matty and Kyle will bring you plenty of tips and ideas about how best to go about getting your first road bike, how to maintain it, as well as some pretty cool events to enjoy when you’ve got to grips with your new two-wheeled toy as well.
We’ll also spend some time talking about covering your bike against theft and damage, as well as some pretty cool advantages of being a British Cycling member.
We hope you enjoy using the website and most of all, find it useful. Be sure to check back often or even follow us on Twitter @roadbikesuk and if you have any ideas about how we could improve the site, then we’d love to hear from you.
