Hello there,
Well, I'm a few years older than you and I ride with drop handlebars though I would admit that I'm rarely down on the hooks themselves. With modern bikes having STi levers it is much more convenient to ride with your hands on the lever hoods or on the bar tops. I also have the top of the handlebar stem only just below the saddle to avoid getting a crick in the neck.

If you're not sure then you could always go for a flat bar bike. These are the same as the "racing" bikes but with a straight handlebar instead of drops.
