Promoting fitness with your boyfriend is always a good thing! For his birthday gift this year, what do you think about getting him a nice bicycle, so that you and him can ride together outdoors and enjoy the outdoors at the same time? We think this is a great idea and want to ensure that you choose the right type of equipment in order to have the best bicycling experience you can get. Depending on what type of riding you plan to do, you will choose a certain type of bike. The good thing is that some bikes can be used with multiple styles of riding as there are some overlaps. The most common types of riding our recreational and leisure riding, touring which refers to long distances, road riding where most of the cycling is done on pavement, and off road riding which incorporates rocky, dirt and anything off tarmac. Another item to factor in, is what type of terrain will you be writing in. Think about your surrounding area is and if you have hills and mountains, bike paths on the street, off-road trails with roots and rough tracks, and country or dirt roads that have gravel. Once you figure out a few of these important items, you can go around looking for the right type of bike for your boyfriend and yourself. Riding his new bicycle will help to promote health and fitness together, as well as give you time to bond when you are out riding together!
