Finally!!!

After I learned to ride last week and riding for 1 mile Sunday morning, I finally got to go riding again. This time its was due to a contusion that I got playing soccer. Think I am going to give up playing soccer and stick to riding it too physical. But I got in a good 4 miles today and only crash once when I look behind me and my brother who learn to ride with me was on the ground and I couldn't break-- The front brake wasn't holding that's why.

Ok so now I know this is what I want to do regular to get fit, What is a cheap entry level bike I can get my budget is approximately $600? I don't plan to win any races just ride and have fun with a comfortable ride.

Raleigh makes decent road bikes in that price range. I think my Revenio was ~$574. It's a good bike and fits me great.

If you're looking for a commuter I have a Giant Escape that's good as well.

The bike as equipped in these photos was around ~$623, if you don't want baskets, lights, fenders, etc. it's about $150 less.
