Warmer weather is now here, which means spending more time outdoors.
If you’re not a fan of swimming, hiking or running, one activity to consider to get moving is bike-riding.
Since spring has arrived, now may be a good time to invest in a bike before the buying surge begins again.
Plenty of retailers sell basic bicycles and equipment — Dick’s Sporting Goods currently has sales right now — and you can also search higher-end inventory at bike-specific stores like Sun & Ski Sports.
Here is a roundup of where you can buy bikes right now, from mountain to road to exercise bikes — organized by price (high to low).
