My name is Andrew and I am an absolute newbie when it comes to biking. I live in North Atlanta in case anyone is from around here. While in the Army, I injured my lower back and in the process gained about 25lbs from lack of exercise/laziness. Since running is really not a good option for me at this time, after a long wait period I decided to go purchase an entry level road bike today. I rode about three miles and probably had 6 heart attacks in the process but it was a good time. If anyone has any advice or recommendations on accessories to get, I will be greatly appreciative. Thanks for having me.
