Six of the best women’s urban bikes for under £700


The Ridgeback is a perfect entry level urban bike, with road bike-sized wheels for a smoother ride.

Ridgeback’s Element Open Frame bike costs £499 and has an adjustable multi-position stem, so you can alter the height of the bars and easily find the right riding position for you.

The frame is an ‘open’ design, meaning the top tube is lower, making getting on an off the bike less of a stretch, as well as providing plenty of stand over room.

It’s one of the best urban bikes on the list as the gears are from the Shimano Acera range and the road bike-sized wheels are smooth rolling and puncture resistant, with fat Continental Contact 32mm tyres to confidently tackle the rigours of city streets.
