Hi Everyone: I'm a 47 yr woman looking to bike again. We biked as kids on what we called an English racer and loved it. With gas getting so high, I'm looking for an excuse to get a new bike and commute to work 2 or 3 days a week. We don't live in a commute friendly town, but we do have shoulders on some of our main roads which recreational bikers use.
I'm commuting 6 miles to work and have some decent hills. I'm trying to decide on a bike now and it's tough. Wish me luck.
