So part of my loose weight and get fit plan I decided to pull out my bike from the shed and get pedalling. OK so its been in there for about 10 years and to say it was a a bit worse for wear is an understatement!!!
The hubby suggested going for a look at some new mountain bikes. We have a few options in Aberdeen but we took a trip to Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative on George Street, Aberdeen. Upon entering I was faced with a huge selection of bikes.
So where to start?? Thankfully their helpful staff could see I was in a dilemma on what to look at! Who knew there were so many different types of bikes!!
After a bit of questioning it was decided that a mountain bike would suit my needs – don’t plan on doing much road cycling, prefer tracks, forest runs and so on. The choice was getting easier – I was down to two bikes. Being a girl I was going on looks and colour 🙂
So we found my new bike: an Revolution Ascent XC Disc ’13 – yeah I know how technical I sound!
Revolution is Edinburgh Bicycle Coop’s own brand and ticks every box for my biking needs. Best of all the shop currently has 15% off everything – meaning the bike is budget realistic and affordable.
Bad news I now have to wait until Friday to get my hands on my beautiful new bike.
As well as over 100 bikes, the shop also provides a good selection of cycle clothing and accessories. They also have an in-store workshop for repairs and servicing.
I can’t recommend the shop and helpful staff enough, and look forward to going out for my first ride on my new bike.
