well having just attained the ripe old age of 50 , nostalgia has set in ,so, there,s this old fool stripping and cleaning and reassembling the trusty old 10 speed,(lookin mighty fine i must say) all the time thinking "piece of cake , u never forget how" but, now is the time of truth "riding it" threw the old leg over (OMG , did the seat always feel like this ? ) managed about 6 feet then sorta fell off ! lol, so, question is-how would you suggest that i re enter the wonderful world of biking without killing myself ? short rides ? just coast downhill ? try to make it to the end of the block (without falling off ? ) i think i need the wisdom of my peers ,plz guy,s i DO want to do this but its been a long time ! p.s (i,m 6.3 and not overweight,not fully fit but i aint dead yet ) oh to be 16 again !
