I agree with the fun way of exercising ... I can only plod around by myself but my nearest bif town has a bike club so maybe I could tag along with them if I am in town.
Terrain is only slightly undulating and pretty sandy ... I have discovered that the sandiest parts are a bit tricky! I am still getting used to the gears.
I have a Trek 3500 ... which I hope means something to someone
I did a bit of reading up first but really put it all in the hands of the bike shop owner. He was pretty good and probably could have sold me a more expensive bike but insisted it would only have features that I wouldn't use anyway.
