    New to biking/cycling

    First time rider. Had Achilles Tendon surgery 10 months ago....have not run since then, so I am going to ride a bike for exercise and hopefully lose a few pounds.

    My wife also got a new bike. I know, I should learn to shift gears--but right now just not into that and everywhere I ride is flat and open. Had a 21 speed bike some years ago and gears were nothing but trouble for me. I got a Trek Lime and my wife got a Trek Coaster or something. Maybe if I get into cycling a little more serious, I will purchase another bike in the future.

    Located in Louisiana, across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans.

    I enjoy this site and you guys are full of great info and knowledge.

    New bikes are fun.
    Take it slow.
    Shifting will be easy.
