Look at this bike. It’s yellow, like Spring flowers. The point? The weather’s getting warmer and there’s never a better time to get a bike than now.
Sure, you could do what everyone else does and wait until the weather is nice, but we’ll walk you through the benefits of getting a bike now and not later.
1. It’s easier to get a deal. Bike shops are not a bastion of activity in the winter. Most people fit into the category of fair-weather friends. This means that when the temperature drops, people stop taking interest in outdoor activities. With a long couple of quiet months behind us, we’re eager to please and get more people on bikes.
2. No one else is doing it. Sure, Summer’s a few months away and Spring is hardly here but you’re going to want to take full advantage of it. Waiting to get a bike until then means you’re going to be joining everyone else that had the exact idea because, ohmygod! it’s warm out! Warmer months are coming regardless so why not plan for it now?
3. Riding your bike earlier in the season gives you more time to work the kinks out. Whether you’re out of shape or you’re just getting onto a new bike, getting started slow and easy is always a great idea. This means that when those unbeatably beautiful Spring/Summer days start rolling in you’ll be in condition and have your bike adjusted just right to take full advantage.
