Newbie biker not by choice
I'm in US from last 3 years on work visa. Although, my employer has filed for visa extension but due to an expired visa in hand, I can' drive my car. So I expect to get an extension possibly in a month or two. This forced me to look out for alternatives and the idea of riding a bike clicked for my commute, dropping off my daughter to school and other chores.
I am not a professional rider and started doing some research on the internet about bikes. So I like to take the privilege to ask you all professional and expert riders to suggest some useful tips for me to start with.
I'm in Atlanta, GA. 5'10'' tall. My budget is approx. 500USD.
Thanks for your help.
