I've been encouraged by a few friends and have finally decided to wet my feet and start riding. I'm on a low budget, so I will be using a Mongoose MGX-DXR that was given to me a few days ago. It's a few years old, but only ridden a few times. My brother had it sitting in his shed.
I'm wondering if you could help advise me on where I should start once I get the bike up and running? I would prefer to ride trails, however should I start on the road/paved trails?
I ride spinning class at my gym a few times per week, however don't feel I am in excelletn shape by any means.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated!
