The editors of Bicycling.com gave Raleigh's cruiser cycle an editors' choice award, saying it "defines city style." For riders who want a cruiser this is a great option.

This is a fun way to go, and a style moms love for sure!

Best Women's Bike Under $500 - Swobo Crosby

"Wired" magazine called Swobo's cruiser cycle "light, tough, easy to carry and versatile," whether you plan to hit your favorite mountain bike paths or cruise through your neighborhoods. Features include an easily modifiable hub that lets you quickly convert from free-gear to single-speed modes, a carbon-fiber fork that keeps things light without sacrificing strength and extra-grippy brake pads. This seems like a great option and is sure to be a great ride.

This bicycle is amazing and has great  low price. The paired spokes and sleek racing style Alloy rims are worth the money. This is an excellent entry to medium level Hybrid bicycle for anybody that is serious about riding, but does not want to spend a lot to get one. The bicycle is lightweight, rides smoothly, you can adjust the shock absorbers. It has a lot to offer you. The frame is Aluminum hybrid that comes with RST Omni 790.

Best Women's Bike Under $200 - Huffy Alpine 26-Inch Women's All-Terrain Bicycle

The Huffy Alpine Women's Bicycle can be easily driven on mountain trails, along shorelines or through open pastures without a problem. You can't go wrong getting a bike that is this versatile. The frame of this mountain bike is made of steel, which will provide necessary strength and stability when gliding through intense mountain trails. Shifting between the 18 speeds is extremely easy through the ENZO Twist Shifting Gear. The brakes use a steel linear pull system, which is developed for the intense braking that is common in wilderness biking. Women will have some great rides with this bike.

Electra Ticino

Electra's Ticino comes recommended by "Bicyling" magazine. Its retro styling is based on Italian and Swiss cruiser bicycles from the 1940s. Super unique and cute. But just because it's retro doesn't mean it's slow or unwieldy, with aluminum components and cranksets that give it the performance of a modern cruiser. That is a great feature because even though you are on a crusier, you still want some pick up and go and easy riding.

Electra Gigi

This is another fun Beach Cruiser. If you're looking for a feminine and pretty bike, these cruisers come in bright colors, complete with floral trim and space for a classic bike basket. So darn cute! This bike has been Best Bike pick. It offers bright colors, a '50s-style bell, and even a rack on the back, along with a smooth ride.

Raleigh Alysa FT2

The Raleigh Alysa FT2

If you're looking for a fitness bike, this is a great option. Thin tires, a lightweight frame, and features like adjustable brake levers for smaller hands and a wider saddle with a cutout to relieve pressure on soft girl-part tissues. This is perfect for new riders because its flat handlebar gives the feeling of better control. This is a great option for a more of an exercise bike.

Marin Bear Valley Hardtail Mountain Bike

How about getting a mountain bike? Here's a great option that you can ride just about anywhere, street or mountain. The frame for this mountain bike has been specifically designed for women to match their torso and inseam measurements. In order to provide a stable and lightweight bicycle, the frame has been manufactured out of aluminum. Because this bike has been designed to be used on mountain trails, the disc brakes are powered by a hydraulic system for controlled and responsive deceleration in any weather or terrain situation. There are 24 speeds you can choose from and with the Shimano shifters, shifting throughout the gears is smooth to prevent jerking that can cause you to lose balance on rough terrain. The seat has been contoured to specifically fit the soft tissues and bones of a woman to provide a comfortable ride.

Novara Mia

Novara Mia Cruiser

The Novara Mia Cruiser Bike has been designed for the city streets biker. The frame of this bicycle features the step-through design, which allows you to easily mount and get off. Which I find very important. The stand-over height provides enhanced stability during stop-and-go city maneuvering. There are 24 speeds that are chosen through the twist shifting gear. The handle bars are higher than the seat for easy operation and with a built-in bell, you will be able to clearly signal to those around you. Never underestimate a good bell, you never know when you really might need it. For added comfort, the seat has been designed specifically for a woman's frame and with a memory foam cushion you will remain comfortable no matter how long you are on the bicycle. The tires have a reflective sidewall so you are visible during the evening hours. You will have fun and get some fun riding in on this bike.

Schwinn Frontier FS

Bike Radar notes that Schwinn is a "household name" for its high-quality cruiser bicycles, and this one, which earned four stars out of five, is no different. Features include a high-speed steering system, an extra-wide saddle that helps minimize road discomfort, a shock-absorbing fork and a geometric shape that shifts your weight forward for better pedaling performance. I have grown up knowing Schwinn is a great brand bike and it still holds true today. You will have made a great purchase with this one.

Nirve Hello Kitty Special Edition Retro Kitty Women's Cruiser Bike

Moms can enjoy and have a fun Hello Kitty Pink bike too. Be the talk of the neighborhood with this bike. It is "Super Cute!" So, I had been eyeing up this bike forever. When it gets delivered it, it comes in this huge heavy hello kitty decked out box unassembled. So, you want t be ready to put it together and maybe get some help. This is a big bike, so the best option might be getting a bike rack on top of the car, if you need to transport it. The bike seat is embroidered, and it comes with a cute little bell all with hello kitty on it. Even the wheels have hello kitty treads on them. The company also sends touch up paints just in case. Very nice feature. The handle bars are aligned almost like a chopper so it's easy to ride one handed and just relax while riding. You will definitely get some attention with this bike. I really want this bike.
