10 of the Best Commuter Hybrid Bikes for Under £500

Out top rated commuter hybrid bikes. 10 of the very best for under 500 with tips and buying advice

If you want a commuter hybrid bike that can take the rough with the smooth, handle potholes and towpaths with ease, and is set up and ready to ride, then the Raleigh Pioneer is pretty much spot on.

It comes with a pannier rack (with bungee straps) and mudguards already fitted, so it’s ready to load up and go whenever you are. A kickstand is a great addition for parking up, and a chain guard will help prevent loose clothing getting snagged.

Fatter tyres 38c tyres will make rolling over rough ground a smooth experience, especially when combined with the suspension in the forks. Importantly, this suspension can be locked out when you’re riding on the road, saving your pedal power.

24 gears will make short work of climbs, with enough oomph to power up on the downhills and flat sections. In fact, if you enjoy cycling, this bike would also work great for longer weekend touring expeditions.
