Where can you get a bike? Where can you have it repaired or adjusted? And where can you buy cycling clothes and other accessories? In our Pohyb a relax section in this WHERE in Brno issue you will find many tips on where, how and in what to ride!

Before you visit cycling e-shops or pop into bike stores, think about what type of cycling you actually want to get involved in. We assume that you probably won’t decide to play cycle ball or do artistic cycling, so most likely you will be choosing between road and off-road biking. While on the road your biggest motivation will be the speed and time it will take you to travel a certain distance, in the mountains it will be trails of various difficulties, uneven terrain and possibly bike jump ramps. However, don’t get confused by the expression „in the mountains.“ Once you get into the local cycling bubble, you will quickly understand that our city offers countless places to enjoy off-road cycling. Whatever you decide, get some advice before buying a bike and its accessories.
