Im a 36yr old soon to be rider from SE MI .
In this amazing information age, the easiest way to quickly increase my knowledge about ...... well about anything is to join a nice forum/community.....
so here I am... I come for the great wealth of knowledge, and experience that this community holds....
OK, I got here by Googling "bike forums"..... I have found in my experience that the first 1 or 2 links that come up are usually great communities, this one was #1 under that search.
Can some one quickly bring me up to speed on the history/size of this community and how long it's been around......
What made this community the right one for you, or do you have other sources for your info as well?
To be honest, I have not read many of the threads . I just found the forum today, and read 1 sticked thread about what do you ride/how/where, type of thing. I found the info well thought out and very informative.
I have known for a year or two know, that I wanted a road bike. To use for my cardio to compliment swimming, and running.
I love being out doors, & enjoy all types of sports and activities.
I will be picking out an entry level road bike, and I thought that I could come and get some info on what to, and not to purchase ....
I also wanted to quickly learn how to be safe on the roads, and what my rights as a cyclist are.
I was considering this road bike, it's $150 (walmart) anyone have an opinion on it?
I just need something inexpensive, so that I can figure out if serious biking is for me or not.
