Hello from Central Iowa

Hi everybody, I am an older guy, not quite to typical retirement age but never the less in a forced retirement due to health. I started biking for the first time since I was young last summer with a very cheap used bike I bought off of craigslist to see if I liked it at all. This winter I quit smoking and had smoked for over 40 years so that was somewhat of a miracle. Now I am interested in getting more serious about doing some biking this summer. With that being said, I wanted to find a community on the Internet where I could learn more about them to figure out what would be a better used bike (not too expensive) that I could find and do some biking! I found the forum by googling a brand name to see what I could find out and one of the top hits was a response on here about a bike advertised. Then I realized well I can always ask the experts on here what they think of different bikes that I could find around the area for sale. I look forward to learning some things from the members!
