First Bike since I was kid

What's up guys, I went on a family vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC this past week. The house we stayed had a old cruiser bike and I started riding it around town and really enjoyed it. So on Saturday, the In-laws, Wife, And I ate a Deli and beside that was a bike shop, so we all head over after lunch and take a look. Both my In-laws and I end up leaving each with a brand new Electra Townie 7. I got the tall frame as I am 6-4, red in color. We go back to the beach house and My father in-law and I take a them out for a 16mile ride. So to say the least I'm hooked.

For a 16-miler, that bike should fit the bill. Enjoy your second childhood and long may it last.
