Just like picking the perfect pair of running shoes, you first need to size your bike. Stand over the top tube and shoot for about an inch of clearance between your body and the frame. If this sounds foreign to you, your local bike shop can help with this. Get more details on how to find the right bike size here.
Next you need to pick a bike that fits your budget and riding style. Are you going to log casual miles on the weekends? Do you want to use your bike for exercise? Are you planning on eventually doing long-distance rides like centuries or racing? Road bike frames have specific geometries and components, tailored for each of these goals at every price point.
As riders get older, they do need a little bit more rest. But it is very individual. You get some 55-year-olds who will happily ride five or six times a week, and you might get a 40-year-old who just feels they need that rest. As a general rule of thumb, the need for rest days does slightly increase as you get older.
The hangover is also a blessing for my dad, as my booze-hindered leg and lung capacity allow him to drop me at every opportunity. Enjoy it while you can – your hangovers are at least 75 per cent more brutal at 25 than at 18, and it’s all downhill from here.
