If your New Year’s resolution was to hit the road, then you’ll want a good quality bike on which to do it. Thankfully there’s a wide range of options when it comes to women’s specific models in and around the £1000 mark, meaning that you may even be able to splash out using your cycle to work scheme.
So what are you looking for in a bike in this price range? You’ll be weighing up a number of factors: are disc brakes more important to you than women’s specific frame geometry? Or are you happy with a female-friendly finishing set but you demand as much carbon as possible? Are you still trying to get a deal in and around the £800 mark, or are you happy to spend a round grand in order to get a higher spec?
We’ve tried to mention the main features of each of the models below in order to help you make that decision. Happy buying!
