Hey bike forums, I got into biking over the summer when I rode the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Towpath from Pittsburgh to DC. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a lifelong hobby, and so I figured I'd sign up and get some advice on where to bike and what bike to buy. I posted this (http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php/725479-Questions-about-purchasing-my-first-(real)-bike.?p=12463545#post12463545) in the mountain biking forum before I saw the introductions section. So hi!
