    Hi

    What do you recommend for adult women over 30 and starting to cycle? (i.e what bike to start with etc)

    What should one expect e.g maintenance implications, parts etc

    Safety issues?

    Do you sell the bike with everything all one has to buy accessories separately? at what cost e.g helmet, bike suits etc

    Whats the average price for the bike brands you recommend? are they new or used?

    thanks
    Grace

      Since you intend to start cycling, I recommend a light weight steel or aluminum bike, with the prices ranging from from 15000 to 23000. Aluminum is light weight and therefore the bike wont strain your knees when climbing, they also last longer because they are immune to rust. the right size for you will depend on your height. For maintenance and parts. A bicycle needs regular checks and service, probably after every two months depending on how frequent your rides are. replacement parts are available locally and we can offer you mechanic services at our shop we also have mobile mechanics. costs depends on what needs to be repaired. for safety you need a helmet and you also need to avoid roads with heavy traffic especially if you are not confident enough. we have a lot of beautiful and safe roads for beginners in westlands area, muthaiga, lavington, dagoreti, and large estates. remember to always keep left and obey traffic rules.

      We don’t sell the bike with everything, you will purchase the accessories that you need separately. for example a good helmet goes for about 3500 the suits (full kit) anything between 1000 and 3000 for used

      The avarage price for an average, used top brand bike like giant,trek, specialized, gt, cannondale, fuji is around 15000 to 25000

    As marketing responsible guy for the Dutch Antilles based African Cycling tour operator I surf the internet once in awhile, especially for Kenya based activities. The Cycloville site drew attention of course. Since everything regarding cycling promotion is carried out by enthousiastic individuals I herewith confirm that René van Veldhuijzen, as fervent Kenya cycling lover, will ride a new organised Kenya bicycle tour for the first time in July this year. His goal is to develop a continuing tour program.

    I subscribe your values and would like to let know that all possible support of the Cycloville organisation is most welcome and logical contributions to our program development can find a reward. Therefore don’t hesitate to reply to this comment. Decent proposals will be answered by the writer of this.

      hello

      I’m impressed with the work that cycloville team is doing. I believe in change and youth empowerment . I think there should be an increase in renting outlets for bicycles in Kenya as it would go a long way in promoting the culture through out the nation..some young people wish to ride a bike every once in a while but they might not afford one..renting would be a more affordable option for them…young people form the largest portion of Kenya’s population making this the best way to popularize cycling as a pass time as well as a sport …the outlets would employ the youth reducing unemployment and as they ride many would discover their talent.Many more initiatives would consequentially emerge as a result of having many more people involved and there’d be a large population taking part in such initiatives..

        Hi Barbra yes i agree that renting out bikes will surely contribute in creating a big change, however, the risk is also very high because you cant just trust people you don’t know. This is something that we will try to figure out how best we can do and how best we can reduce the risk to levels we can handle. Any ideas from you will be highly appreciated.
