Hello Brian, check out the regional forums (that would be the Great Lakes, for you), and see if there's some locals to give you some motivation to get out on the road.

As for bike recommendations, stop by the local bikes shops and see what fits you. There are some good entry level road bikes in your price range. The LBS is always recommended for the first bike, but you can always check the local Craigslist/thrift shops for a good used bike.

Welcome to BF!
