New to cycling

Hi,
I'm 21 from just north of Toronto
I just started cycling everywhere i need to go. I've found quiet some enjoyment in biking to and from my places of habit and would like to do it more.

On monday to thursday i bike 8km to my Taekwondo class and 8km back
and on Saturday Sunday I usually bike 13.5 km to work, and 13.5km back

My bike is a CCM Bike with shocks in the front, I know its not the most ideal for roads and stuff, but I am a student and money is a bit of an issue, so its all i got

I realised that after biking to work and back one day that being able to bike large in a day is not that hard of a task.
I hope to be able to bike 50 Km by the end of the summer.

Thats me

Cheers and welcome. Ride what you have. When the time comes that you have the means to upgrade, you should have a fairly good idea of what kind of bike you want / need, because you've cycled quite a lot already. Only problem will be telling the difference between want and need.
