If you are fortunate enough to live near a large body of water, you will most likely want to enjoy that close proximity as much as possible. One way to enjoy the outdoors by the water is with a new bicycle designed for just that purpose.
Some trends go out of style for a period, and then come back stronger than ever. One such case is with the beach cruiser bicycle. While they initially hit mainstream popularity from the 1930s through the 1950s, they have reemerged on nearly every beachfront today and are more popular than ever.
Despite the easygoing nature of the bicycle’s name, the design of a typical cruiser bicycle is actually quite rugged and durable. The steel construction and single-speed drivetrain form a strong, straightforward foundation while the natural upright seating and balloon tires offer exceptional comfort.
It should be noted that this style of bike is not intended for road races and speed riding. The beach cruiser is designed for slow casual riding, the type of riding that allows you to enjoy the scenery around you, enjoy riding with your friends while having a conversation, or to commute in populated areas.
So if you’re not looking for an intense, sweaty cardo type of ride, the beach cruiser bike may be just what you’re looking for. They come in different styles, colors, and options with many accessories available to personalize your riding experience.
