Need help, new to cycling !
I've just been introduced to cycling by one of my co-workers. I am captivated by the exotic look of road bikes, and the idea of working out, saving money on commuting, and reducing my carbon footprint.
I want to bike to school which is about 10 miles from my house. Since i live in NYC i am not sure what kind of bike i should buy, or where to start looking for the matter.
I am 5'6'' and i weigh 130 pounds, male.
I love the look of road bikes, but if i cant use that for my situation, then ill deal with it. The main problem i have is figuring out with the busy roads of NY, if it would be ideal to get a road bike.
