Intro

I live in Cataula, GA and am 48 years old , 6'1" and about 247 lbs. I am wanting to take up cycling to complement my running which I started about a year ago and enjoy. Other than general riding throughout my youth (non geared bikes), I am a complete novice. I am hoping to find a good used bike (probably a hybrid) for routine paved trails, rails to trails, etc. with some farm trails (good shape, no jumps, etc.). Currently looking at used 2008 Globe Carmel I (Large frame) which I can get for $225 and am trying to determine if that is a good fit and price, etc. I am hoping to learn more here that will me help me as I start down this hopefully enjoyable path.

Don't be afraid to start with a road bike.
