    Getting started bicycling

    If any of you guys cycle I need some advice on what kind of bike to get and all the rules of cycling on the road and stuff.

    My real concerns are:
    -How much money am I going to spend on a rad bike
    -The drivers here are crazy and I will probably die
    -Keeping the thing from getting stolen at school

    Are you really going to use it or you just think it would be cool to use it?

    I would suggest looking at the highway code, there is a section for cyclists that will tell you all you need to know, experience and commitment will teach you the rest.

    And what type of terrain will you be cycling on? That will determine what type of bike to get.
