    New 'cyclist Gardendale, AL

    Hello everyone, I recently decided to start saving up some money for a new bike. It will of course be my first real bike and my first bike to have sense I was like 10 years old. I am currently 25 and I will turn 26 August 21st. I live in Gardendale, AL which is just north of Birmingham. I am looking to get some sort of hybrid for mostly pavement riding that I will use for recreation, exercise, and maybe some short commutes.

    I am still very new to the whole cycling thing and don't really know much about bikes besides for the fact that they have 2 wheels. That is part of the reason I joined this site, and I want to thank you all for helping me so much already (from reading ). I did visit the a local bike shop (Bob's Bikes) the other day and they pointed me towards a specialized crosstrail and maybe a Giant Roam (b/c I told them I will be riding on a few gravel/dirt driveways and roads).

    As for me, I have been married for 5 years and my interest include pretty much all sports and model rocketry (i'm a bit of a nerd lol). We currently have no kids but we do have 2 very spoiled dogs: a retired racing greyhound and an Italian Greyhound.

    Thank you all for welcoming me to the forums and hopefully I'll be talking to you some on the forums!
