Hi everybody, I am just shy of turning 55 and just started riding a bike some last summer. I enjoyed it and want to find a better bike as the one I have was VERY cheap and isn't a good bike at all. I don't want to spend a lot but want to find a quality used bike. I also obviously am going to have to take time working up to riding very far. I quit smoking almost 3 months ago which is amazing because I have tried before but never been able to do it. Smoked for over 40 years. I started vaping (using the electronic cigarettes with the refillable tanks for the liquid which is just PG, VG, nicotine and flavoring. It really has been a miracle for a lot of people like myself that have used them to quit.
Anyway, need to figure out what type of bike I should look for, I know I don't want a mountain bike, it will all be on trails, streets, etc so I don't know if a hybrid is ok or if I definitely want a road bike. Usually the decent road bikes for sale are pricey but I can look for a while.
Any ideas or advice? TIA!
