|Renovo Beach Cruiser by Richard Masoner / Cyclelicious|
Whether you want the benefits of cycling for health, running errands, or the enjoyment of lazy beach rides, the cruiser offers a relaxed ride at an affordable price. Depending on your priorities and preferences, you may want to get a multispeed cruiser, add a cushy seat, or check out some of the special lights and baskets available for beach cruisers. The cruisers of today are enjoyed by adults and kids alike, and come in all varieties.
Consumer Reports advises purchasing your bike from a local bicycle retailer rather than a big box store. Big box stores cut costs by selling cheaply-made bicycles that do not hold up to regular riding conditions. Even a low-priced cruiser at a quality local specialty shop will be made with good components that will last you through the years.
