How and where to buy an exercise bike: these retailers still have stock


An exercise bike is a great way to get a good workout indoors, whether it’s an intense anaerobic spin session or a long endurance ride. They take up less space than a treadmill, are generally more affordable, and while demand has increased while people are locked out, they are much easier to find.

Exercise bikes are always a big investment, and your choice can make the difference between a machine that gives you great daily workouts and something that just collects dust.

Choosing the right exercise bike is a big decision, so what should you look for when making your choice? Olivia Neely, personal trainer at Starks Fitness (currently sharing home workout videos on starksfitnessgym on Instagram) gives the following tips.

With this, home training equipment is widely sought after, so we have to be strategic about our purchases. It is worth considering equipment that can be used in the longer term. And of course, the one that will match all of your training desires; cardiovascular, endurance or strength. So how about an indoor stationary bike to help reach these goals, rain or shine.

Here are some tips to make sure you buy the right kit for your needs.

What kind of bike?

The most obvious but most important consideration. There are many types, all focused on different cycling methods. A straight bike, a recumbent bike, a spin bike, the list goes on…

Think about your previous cycling experiences. Do you usually take a bike along the waterway? Or are you an avid mountain biker? Try to match your previous experience with your current goals.


We all want a bike that is aesthetically pleasing, but more importantly, how much space do you have for it? For the most part, the bike will stay in your living room or bedroom, so make sure it fits! Also note that more advanced equipment (with a higher price) will undoubtedly offer a more careful design requiring less space.


The features vary depending on the bike you choose, but here are a few things to watch out for:


With such a variety of options, it is important to be realistic with your budget. Consider brand new models compared to the used car, as you can often find an “almost new” model for a fraction of the price.
