RC from the SF Bay Area. Took up bike riding this past Labor Day after not having been on a bike for about 40 years, and after about a month of ramping up and a few urban cycling classes, I started mixed-mode commuting two to four days a week.
At this point, I'm a "bike rider," not a "cyclist." I ride an Electra Townie 21d, and I do all of my riding in street clothes. I still rat the trails on the weekend, although I'm spending less time there and more on the road. We'll have to see how long I stick with this before I think about taking it to that next level.
You'll mostly find me in Commuting and Fifty Plus.

Welcome to Bike Forums. Glad you found us. Have fun.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
