Just wanted to say hello. This is my first time here and I would like to ask a question.
I will hit the big "40" next week and decided it's time to finally start exercising to lose some extra #'s. I have a few friends at work who speak highly of bike riding, so I decided to try it out. I borrowed a bike and took a few short rides and I got hooked.
I stopped by the local bike shop and test rode a few Giant and Marin bikes and the Marin Coast Trail (2002 model) felt the best. I will pick up the bike on Saturday, but am having some second thoughts. Knowing practically zero about biking and fitness, is this a good choice for a "beginner"? The majority of my rides will be on paved roads/trails. Thanks in advance for the input.
