You Don’t Need Bike Shorts Or Clip-In Shoes For These Cute Commuter Bikes

Women's Health Logo By Laura Lajiness of Women's Health | Slide 1 of 16: Whether you're commuting to work or making a grocery store run, bicycling can be one of the quickest (and most enjoyable!) ways to get from point A to point B. And, of course, it just so happens to be a great workout and one of the most environmentally-friendly ways to travel in the game. Well, if you've got the right set of wheels, that is. Regardless of whether you're a seasoned cyclist or haven't ridden a bike (aside from the stationary bike) since middle school, biking around your town (or city) is easiest done with a commuter bike.Unlike speedy-looking road bikes, commuter bikes are generally pretty simple and comfortable. No cushioned bike shorts or crouchy, aerodynamic position necessary. These bikes feel nice and sturdy, so you can handle any potholes and bumpy roads that come your way, too. Of course, if you really want to get to your destination fast (or you just don't want to break a sweat on your way there), you can upgrade from a standard commuter bike to an E-bike, or electric bike, which has a built-in motor that propels you along.Whatever ride you go for, though, make sure to get fitted at a bike store beforehand to keep your cycling comfy and injury-free. And, of course, stick to bike paths and lanes as much as possible when you hit the streets—especially if you live in a busy city, like me!Not sure where to even start? If you're ready to cruise, check out these 15 tried-and-true commuter bikes. All of them are highly-rated and backed by rave reviews from commuters and road-riders who've already got their feet in the pedals.
