Looking into biking for leisure, also possibly for a couple of years commuting between London and Cambridge. I'm trying to estimate costs of getting started, avoiding buying too cheap and paying twice. Let me know how wrong I am (and I've literally never biked before, so I am basing this on the internet reading alone...)
CBT test, Theory and Practicals: £850
Mesh gear (good quality, full outift): £850
Decent 2nd hand 600cc bike: £3000
Experience: I've driven for 20 years and cycled a pushbike in London for 5 years. No accidents on the bike but am used to expecting everyone else to try to kill me.
My first post - sorry if I've made lots of wrong assumptions. Many thanks for any help in keeping the costs down.
