Hello. I am 41 years old and haven't been on a bike for 20 years. That is, until this past summer. I bought a new bike, a Diamondback Wildwood Deluxe. It's kind of a cross between a road bike and a mountain bike. I intended to just ride casually around the neighborhood for fitness. But now I'm hooked. I'm shopping around for a good road bike and setting some goals for myself. I'd love to get involved in a club and ride in some races. I'm still a long way from that though. I live in a beautiful city that has a lot of great bike routes and paths.
In my search for the right road bike, I'd be interested to know what some suggest to look for and what to avoid.
