I recently joined a fitness program and find that I am having trouble getting in my steps per day. I have several bicycle trails literally minutes away from me, yet I don't find walking as enjoyable as riding a bike. I have not ridden a bike since childhood so I am looking to purchase my first adult bike.
I do not need anything for strenuous exercise, just something for casual riding, commuting, and to burn a few calories while I'm at it. I do have a very specific style I like, and aesthetics are important to me.
I have looked online and in my local bike shop, and these are the bikes they had in the shop that I liked. I'm not opposed to branching out and getting something else online, but I'd much prefer to support local business when possible. Would anyone be willing to take a look and help me narrow down my list? I'm a complete newbie so I am not certain on the differences between these. Thanks!
