Dear All, I want to start cycling to work and I wish to know what I should buy. I have looked at town bikes in Halfords and I think they are okay. Please advise. Alternatively, I will welcome any recommendations. Ideally I do not wish to spend more than £150 but I am prepared to spend £200. The route to work it almost entirely flat so I will not really need something too sophisticated. I do intend to carry a laptop with me. More than likely I will use a pannier but I may use my laptop rucksack. Also, any advice regarding helmets will be welcome. Are there any sites bar Ebay which are good to buy second-hand bikes from?
