I am going to buy a bike, price max £1250, I know its a lot but I need a proper bike that will last me and I can think to myself, I have a decent bike now. I miss having a bike and I need to exercise, I am always sitting down. I dont smoke or drink, my only vices are audio books reading and my fav logic games, you got to have a bike for the summer. My history is, mountain bike with slicks, got rid of that, went to a halfords £500 road bike, got rid of that due to excessive punchers, seriously it was a joke every time I went out I got a puncher. I thought I now wanted a Hybrid bike but after some research discovered the Cyclo Cross Bike, its like a road bike, but able to take a bit of a beating and with slightly more decent tyres, it should defend against punchers better.
