Just turned 60, 5' 9" 175 lbs in fair shape. I have ridden some 20 years ago on a road bike and would like to start riding again.
With many different bike configurations today I am having trouble making a choice of what to buy. I live in rural North Carolina and will probably only ride on pavement. I would need a bike with lower gearing until I get in better shape due to hills in the area. My budget is $800-$1200.
Need some suggestions from people my age on what are some good choices, a road bike, touring, or hybrid.
Thanks in advance.
