Hey guys I am 24 years old and the last 4 years I just have been way too lazy and have gained 50 lbs. I am 6'1" 250 lbs and I would like to get back down to around 190 or so. I just got a gym membership and have been doing a lot of lifting but my cardio is lacking. I play basketball once a week but I need to do more and I hate running especially with the shape im in right now. I dont know a lot about bikes as the only time I ever had a bike was just growing up wen I was a kid. I never have biked since. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what kind of bike? What kind of bike rides should I do? Trails? Normal roads with hills? I do have a limited budget as I just graduated college recently and dont have the best job in the world. I am thinking my best bet is to buy Used on Craiglist. I think I can get the best bike for my money on there. I am working with about $100-$150 to spend. I dont need the best bike in the world, just something reliable to get me going and get into shape. If anyone has any suggestions I would truly appreciate it. I live in Chicago and there is a ton of Bikes listed on the chicago craiglist site but it just seems so overwhelming. I have no idea what kind of bike to be looking for?
