Boardman HYB 8.8 Women's Cycling Weekly

With all the talk about new innovations and new styles of bike (we're looking at you, gravel bikes), it’s easy to forget about the humble hybrid bike. It has been a faithful go-to steed for beginner cyclists, commuter riders, cycle tourists and fitness cyclists alike for the last 30 years. A hybrid was the first bike I had when I got into serious cycling. It saw me through a few triathlons and some memorable cycle touring trips across the Peak District.

It is good to see that hybrids still have their place in a bike rider’s stable of two-wheeled horses.

If you’re looking for a reliable hybrid that can cope with variable terrain and long distances, as well as everyday errands you cannot go far wrong with the £800 Boardman HYB 8.8.
