A chain guard to stop the chain coming off, bike stand and specially designed ergonomic saddle and handlebars means this will be the ride of your life!

To get the most from your bike we've put together a list of the best tips to help you get started, whether you're biking for fitness or fun.
The main thing is getting out on the road and having fun, but make sure you do a safety check before setting off: checking that your tyres are inflated, your brakes and lights work and you have a helmet (and elbow- or knee-pads).
If you're new to cycling or out of the habit, find yourself a traffic-free area to start off in, such as your local park. Practise riding single-handed so you can make hand signals, and get comfortable looking over both shoulders to improve your visual awareness.
Make sure you're familiar with the Highway Code before cycling in traffic.
Flat tyre kits are cheap and easy to use, but make sure you practice in the comfort of your own home before being stuck on the side of the road after a long day.
If you're looking to improve your fitness, try interval training. Try the following intervals and see if you notice a difference. (Consult with your doctor before attempting any excericse, be sure to follow the highway code at all times.)
Break out a new map once in a while, biking is a great way to explore a new area and see the sights, while still getting home before sunset or a storm blows in quicker than if you were on foot.
There's nothing more satisfying than conquering a big hill at a steady pace, but with an electric bike, if you get stuck halfway up, you can turn on the pedal-assisted technology and have it carry you the rest of the way.
Commuting to work by bike is an easy way to get your daily activity in and build a habit. Eventually, you want to have built your habit so it becomes part of your life
It sounds backwards, but most people find padded shorts more comfortable than padded saddles, but make sure you get the right height, too.
If you're out cycling on your own, tell someone where you're going and when you're expected back. Be careful not to lock your gears and fall off, instead stay alert and brake earlier.
