Hey bikeforums, my name is Joe, and I'm a 19 year old college student at the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!). I've thought about getting a bike for a while and I think I'm finally going to pull the trigger on it. I think I'll mainly be riding the bike to the gym, about 4 miles away, and on the backroads around here. We have some really nice roads because of all the horse farms, I drive out there a lot just to see the scenery now, I figure why not on a bike. I literally know nothing about bikes but I've ridden bikes throughout my childhood. I'm thinking I'll probably buy a hybrid as I don't like the feel of handlebars on roadbikes. But that's about it, I look forward to a long future in biking.
