    New rider.....

    Hi to everyone!
    I'm looking forward to getting to know all you riders out there!
    I am currently in the process of looking for a bike. I am looking for a hybrid as I am not interested in racing but am interested in riding for fitness, about an hour a day, and riding off trail at least once a week.
    I am 49, female, and have always been active up until about a year ago.
    It's time to get going!

    Hello bebeck625, I don't do any racing either, but I still love my road bikes. Is there a particular reason why you want a hybrid, instead of a road bike?

    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

    [QUOTE=bebeck625;7165896]Hi ... and riding off trail at least once a week.


    Perhaps, you should look into a cyclo-cross bike. They are pretty good on or off road. It may be a good option for you. Welcome to the forum, Wilson
