It looks a good choice to me, though I've only had a short play on one.
Don't over do it, there's nothing wrong with walking up some slopes, make your own rules. It's far better to get home feeling like you could have done a bit more, than so knackered you never want to get on the bike again. When I started I used to do laps of a park, allowed me to increase the distance without committing to it. Good luck, I need some of that myself, this last three months hasn't been kind to my waistline
cheers!, yeah the start of lockdown was just like being back at uni for me haha, junk food all the time, luckily i snapped out of that pretty quick and started losing weight, its tough but rewarding once you start seeing the lb's drop off the scales!
