Road bicycles are designed to cover great distances at speed and so make cycling a great way to stay fit whilst also having fun and enjoying being outdoors. You can even get your training in whilst commuting. Road bikes come in many different frame designs depending on whether their purpose is as a Triathlon, Cyclocross, Touring or Endurance bike. So in order to get the greatest benefit and most enjoyment from your bike it is important to pick the right build for the job and then get it professionally fitted to you. As opposed to mountain bikes, road bikes are easy to distinguish by their much skinnier, high pressured tyres, dual pivot brakes and light build materials.
