New to cycling, new to the board

Hello all!
I'm so new, I don't even own a bike yet!
I haven't been on a bike since high school. There are so many benefits to cycling to work versus driving, that I'm thinking of taking the plunge. I live in town, and have been walking to work since since the temperature here in North Carolina began to drop. The days are going to be getting shorter soon, however, and I though cycling to work soon may be a better option than walking.
Of course, during the summer I drove to work. Walking or cycling through my commute has a lot over driving, however. It's better for the environment and better for my health!
So, I'm here to look around and see what I can learn from more experienced riders.
Thanks!
Michelle

Hi Michelle!

Welcome to Bike Forums! Cycling will change your life in so many ways. Feel free to browse around and check out the commuting forum, general cycling and touring forums also. Sounds like a good hybrid or the awesome new Trek Soho might be good choices for you. Hope you enjoy your time here and let us know what kind of bike you end up getting!

Good Luck on your search for bicycle nirvana!

Hi Michelle. I'm new to both biking and the board, too. I will be riding my daughter's bike for the first week, but she has asked us to bring it to her at college when we visit next weekend. I will soon be looking for a bike of my own. Have you decided what type of bike you would like yet ... comfort, hybrid, something more aggressive? I am interested in hearing about what bikes other ladies are riding and what they find to be comfortable. Good luck!
