Best exercise bikes for home workouts
With prices ranging from £100 to £3,000
Wahoo KICKR Bike
The KICKR is designed to replicate the feel of riding outdoors, with satisfying clunks as you change gears. It also links to Zwift, a kind of pedal-powered video game that allows you to train or compete with riders around the world.
Peloton bikes give you access to live spinning classes, which are displayed on a screen attached to the handlebars. The monthly membership includes yoga, meditation and Pilates.
JLL Home Exercise Bike JF100
This sturdy upright bike offers an impressively smooth and quiet ride, at a bargain price. Relatively basic, it will be particularly good for beginners who are keen to do some cardio workouts at home.
The Apex bike is a slightly cheaper alternative to a Peloton but without an inbuilt screen – it has place for you to attach your own. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but is worth considering as it is good value, all told.
Ultrasport F-bike Trainer
At 14kg, the Ultrasport F-bike is reassuringly solid, and its folded dimensions of 131 x 43.5 x 45cm mean it can be tucked away to save space when not in use. It has eight resistance levels and comes in seven different colours.
