In the new year, many of us like to look ahead and hope for a better 12 months, often with a focus on fitness.
While new year's resolutions typically don't last long, focusing on improving your fitness, prioritising your health, and trying something new is a positive approach to working out.
An at-home exercise bike can be a helping hand to work towards any health goals you may have and are a versatile, easy-to-use and convenient piece of equipment.
Best of all, you can cycle miles while bingeing a new TV show, rather than trying to find the motivation to head to the gym during a cold, wet January.
To help you invest in the right one for your needs, we've curated a shopping guide of the very best, across a range of budgets - some in the low hundreds, others in the thousands - and varied sizes and weights. Happy spinning!
