Choosing a bike lock is a really difficult task. On top of that you got 3 different types. How to choose, which one to choose? Check the individual section below to know more about it
Generally, bike locks are used to fasten your bike to an immovable object, i.e. a bench or bike rack, to protect it from the attention of deadbeats.
These locks are made from a large number of steel links that are usually kept inside a cover to offer proper protection to both your lock and paintwork.
U locks are sturdy and made up of two parts, the U-shaped shackle and a crossbar below which holds and locks the shackle, giving it the appearance of a U or a D.
Folding lock is another way of securing your bike.

The Man Behind The Site: Nathan Jones
Hey there! I’m Nathan, and I’m a professional cyclist. I’ve spent the last 11 years of my life living and breathing bikes (not literally of course, but you get it.) Anything and everything about bikes, you name it, I’ve played around with it! And now I want to share my journey with you.
Biking has taken me to places I never even dreamed of, both figuratively and literally. I’ve travelled across the country, joined countless races and trade shows, tested hundreds of bike products and accessories, set up charity bike rides, and met countless amazing and inspiring cyclists on the way.
Because I love biking so much, I decided to open a shop near my home. The shop was the first step I took towards helping other people get into biking and introduce them to it in a proper way that wasn’t intimidating or daunting. The second step is this: Mybikexl, a website by biking enthusiasts for biking enthusiasts.
Other the years, I’ve also developed my own system of learning how to cycle as fast as possible and how to become a better cycler. The program goes on for 12 weeks. If you’re curious, ask me about it!
When I’m not writing for Mybikexl, I’m either at my bike shop or travelling on my bike.
My Favorite Bike Routes In The USA
The Oregon Coast is one of the most gorgeous shorelines in America stretching at 86.2 miles. This route is perfect for a slow, steady cycling pace. On the way, you’ll be able to pass by tide pools, forests, waterfalls, cliffside trails, and sandy beaches.
This coastal route is perfect for when you’re looking for something to do for one whole day. You can even plan on coffee and lunch breaks in between the dramatic views. This route is best explored between July and September.
Tour of the Battenkill, New York
This 68.1 mile ride is America’s largest one-day pro/am cycling race. It passes through dairy farm country, over covered bridges, railroad crossings, and rugged dirt road. Be ready to work your quads on this trail!
Mt. Evans Climb, Colorado
The top of Mt. Evans is the highest paved road in the US. The 14,271-foot mountain overlooks wave after wave of Rockies on one side with the Eastern Plains in the other. You’ll feel like a kid again riding parts of this 28 mile summit downhill.
Going-to-the-Sun Road, Montana
This 50 mile climb of a route would be extremely brutal if not for the incredible views. Imagine ‘Sound of Music’-like meadows and mountains—plus, you’ll pass by the scenic Lake McDonald.
Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina
The BRP stretches at 47.6 miles and winds along airy peaks from Shenandoah National Park to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Your long ride will reward you with a scenery full of waterfalls, wildlife, and panoramic vistas of rolling mountains.
San Juan Islands, Washington
San Juan islands boasts not one, not two, but several bike routes that you can traverse. Start out with the beginner-friendly Pear Point Loop if you want a pleasant ride through the countryside with minimal traffic. Or take the American Camp National Park/South Beach route to get a great view of the Olympic mountains and lounge around on the island’s largest public beach.
A Ride Through Time, Utah
Also known as Utah’s State Route 12, this scenic route brings all of the charm and splendor of the Southwest spanning over 180 million years of history. You’ll pass by tons of beautiful natural landmarks on this 124-mile journey, such as slot canyons, two national parks, three state parks, the Escalante River, and the famous Hogback rock formation.
Sea to Summit, California
You can start at the San Francisco waterfront, pass by the Golden Gate Bridge, go through the Marin headlands, ride by the beaches along the Pacific shoreline, and climb up Mt. Tamalpais. This one is for the true nature lover who wants to experience all of NorCal’s biodiversity in one trip.
Around Acadia, Maine
Maine is home to the mesmerizing Acadia National Park, a perennial favorite among American cyclists. It’s in a gorgeous area with multiple ride options, such as the paved 27-mile park loop, the 4-mile climb through Cadillac Mountain, and 45 miles of gravel down Carriage Roads. No mountain bike? No problem! The park lends out bikes for the day.
