I've been a commuter cyclist for many years and once a week during the warmer months do a 30mile each way commute. I have twin boys that are approaching 15 and want to do more cycling with me at the weekend. We all have mountain bikes but are looking to replace with adventure bikes as we are more interested in road and light trails (such as the downs link).
I'm looking for bike suggestions, bearing in mind my children are both still growing and could lose interest. Therefore not looking to spend too much, maybe £500 each, but don't want something so heavy/poor it will put them off. We've done 50 mile rides together before and would expect that to be towards the upper end of our typical rides.
All suggestions gratefully received,, especially if anyone has a secondhand one going!
Thanks in advance.
