Hello, I'm a 57yo male. My girl friend & I are just starting biking for exercise. We are close to the Yough River Trail so that's where we will be mostly. We picked up a couple of used Giant bikes, a Cypress for me and a Boulder for her. I have been on a real learning curve and hope to gain more knowledge here. Bicycles sure have become complicated over the years. A friend of mine is an avid bicyleist and has been giving us some tips. Says don't get too caught up with the technical stuff. Most important thing is to get a bike & pedal it!
