Welcome to Bike Forums, Bob!

What type of road riding do you see yourself doing? Commuting, touring, racing, or something else?

Welcome Bob. I started in 1999 with a Raleigh R600 when I was 55 y/o.Why not stop by the Road Cycling forum or the 50+ forum (you're nearly 50 y/o) and ask your question. You'll get lots of good answers. Let us know what bike you get.
