I believe that's the most accurate question a could've asked. For everyone here reading this most likely already knows the basics of riding for I know nothing. I am stationed in el paso texas and almost lost my life in iraq. Now being back for a couple months and searching for somthing to keep my mind busy and current I now reach out to cycling. Can anyone tell me some info. I . E . Where should I ride? What should I look out for? What type of bike should I get? Is it somthing I could excell in and if so how far could I take it. Stuff like that. I usually just sit at home after work with my wife so naturally I don't really have too many people to ask except the guy at the bike shop. Help? Please?
