B'Twin Bikes

B'Twin Bikes

B'Twin are a popular choice of bike in the UK, partly due to their widespread distribution by Decathlon, and partly due to the value they offer. Their bikes are divided into several slightly overlapping ranges, with Triban best known for road and gravel bikes, and Rockrider gaining a reputation for high performing MTBs to suit every budget. Elops largely consist of a range of city bikes, whereas Riverside focus on hybrids. All in all, B'Twin bikes are well worth checking out given the size of their ranges; there's a model to suit most budgets.

Riverside Hybrid Bikes

Riverside Hybrid Bikes

Riverside Bikes are Decathlon's selection of versatile hybrid and e-bikes, with a bicycle for every budget.

If you're a casual cyclist after a new bike for riding on roads with the odd gentle off-road section, then a Riverside hybrid bike wouldn't be a bad choice; prices start at £200 and the impressive buying power of Decathlon enables them to provide very good value for money.

There are also a selection of electric hybrids in the range, for those who require a little assistance up the hills.
