Go to a bike shop and tell them what you would like and what they would recommend. Ride a few to see what works. Get the dimensions you need and then start looking for a used bike that meets your needs. Craigslist is a good place, garage sales, classified ads and even some bike shops sells used bikes. You can get a very good quality bike at a low price if you buy it used.
My guess is that a hybrid might be a good choice. Its a great entry level bike that you can really grow into.
Its better to buy a good quality bike used than a brand new cheap bike.

So: I've given up. My cross country skis need to be put away for the season...sigh

On the bright side, the kayak will be coming out soon.

In the meantime: I'm thinking about getting a bike.

I need something sturdy: I still weigh over 240 pounds and the bike path I'll be using is relatively flat and easy going, but NOT paved.

I also can't spend a LOT of $.

Anyone have suggestions about brand names, models, or features that I want (or maybe DON'T want)?

Thanks!
