Hi from Louisville down the road.
Our state is not necessarily the easiest one in the Union for a beginning cyclist. Level roads are not plentiful, and bike paths are rarer still.
One fun ride, if you don't mind driving due west for one hour, is the Louisville Loop, whcih you can pick up at the Big Four bridge right off I64 and ride 25 miles over to the Morman-Farnsley house. Then you turn around and come back. It's all flat and well-marked. I think it's safe as well.
I own a Townie 21 D. After a while it gets hard on the back and butt, but for short jaunts it's a lot of fun. If and when you get tired of it, come back and everyone will pick out a new bike for you.
