Here to Learn

I have recently become interested in the world of cycling. I don't know much, but I am here to learn! I am looking into buying a good starter bike, but not quite sure where to begin. I thought this might be a good place to get suggestions, advice!

Welcome to BF! Do some window shopping and information gathering at a good local bike shop. They should be able to help you out by suggesting an appropriate bike for you. Good luck with your shopping journey.

When you find a few bikes that appeal to you, post links and questions in the appropriate forum -- road, hybrid, mtn, etc.
Have fun.
