Welcome, I'm new here as well but I've been riding for almost 30 years. I'll pick a random bit of advice that I think is very useful but hardly see anyone do anymore. Learn to wipe your tires while riding. This will extend the life of your tires and lead to less flats which is always a good thing. For your front tire just reach down and using the palm of your hand wipe your tire. For your rear wheel, hook your thumb around your seat stay and then use your palm/fingers to wipe your rear tire. You can do this anytime you hit a patch of glass, junk, or anything that looks like it could cause you to flat.
