New and filled with questions!

Greetings from southern Kentucky!

I've been riding on and off for quite some time. I recently turned 21 and am attempting my venture into the world of biking and mechanics. I've recently struck a great interest in bike mechanics, and how bikes work while working to fix any problems.

I attend college as a student of science (exercise science). I consider fitness a passion of mine and soon would like biking to be a close contender. I bike to class everyday and have recently been trying to fix up my bike:

I ride an older Cannondale, SH400. it's a hybrid and is easy on the road. I'll try to get pictures up later. I know how to do the basics, but I just ordered Parktool's Big Blue book! Was this a good idea? It is still on its way and I can't wait to crack it open.

So, with all this being said, where should I begin my journey?
