Like everyone else, Hello there.
I just started riding seriously again after a 25 year lay off. I started riding in a bike club in 1986 a bought a new Cannondale then. Rode for about a year and had to move for a job so I sold the bike. I bought a Raleigh C40 in 2000 to putts around the neighborhood with the wife and kids. Now that the kids are out of the house, I recently bought a 2008 Specialized Sequoia to ride more seriously. I have ridden it 150 miles in 2 weeks which is very good for me.
Thought I would check in from time to time to pick up some tips. I'm working on upgrading the engine which is not hitting on all cylinders right now.
