As the Tour de France enters stage four, a two-wheeled revolution is happening on the streets of Britain - isn't it time you got involved?

Even if you haven't climbed on the saddle since your last ill-advised scoot around Center Parcs, we've picked some of the best gear to get you rollin'...

 

WHAT WHEELS SHOULD I RIDE?

BUDGET RACER
The light aluminium alloy frame will make that hill near your house feel like a glorified speed bump, while the relatively thick tyres will smooth outthose potholed urban roads.

HERITAGE TOURING
Nottingham-based Raleigh’s 125 years of experience shines through on this solid cycle. Its luggage rack and mountain bike-style gearing make it perfect for a long ride through country.

STYLISH COMMUTER
Riding this British beauty will actually make you look forward to going into work. Puncture-resistant tyres, a lightweight steel alloy frame and disc brakes make it the ultimate commuter.
