New rider

Hi,

I am looking to get into riding and am trying to choose the best bike to start with. I will be riding on roads and would like something comfortable, but something that will last me for a long time. Where I will be riding has some mountain areas if I want, but other areas are relatively flat.

Is there a particular bike that is recommended for beginners?

Larry

Welcome. You might want to ask in the general section. Remember, opinions are just opinions so be prepared to read through a lot of stuff to get the answers that you want. Good luck and have fun!
