Greetings from the Ozarks.

My name is Les, i am 45 yrs old, 40-50# overweight, heavy smoker.
I have raised 3 kids and now i am an empty nester.
I have a grandson who is 4 yrs old who i love dearly.

I got into Vintage stand-up jetskis a couple of yrs ago, and i want to increase my stamina riding the jetskis and get back in shape and be around for my grandson.

Today i was out looking at an old jetski and the seller offered me a Fuji crosstown 4130 for $35, and i brought it home.

From elementary school to high school i had a road bike that i averaged over 100 miles riding a day, and i loved it.

I want to do some commuting and some riding in the Ozarks.

Where is a good section to identify age and specifics of the bike?

And where would an old out of shape dog like me fit into the forums here, where is a good section for me to hang out?

Thank you
Les

Howdy and welcome to the forums.
Old bike? "Vintage" section.
Overweight? "Clydesdale" section.
Also peruse the Road Cycling, General, Recreational forums and whichever regional forum you fall into.
