Hello From Watkins Glen, NY

I just wanted to start with a hello,

I am 40 years old, and got on a bicycle last October for the first time in 25 years. Last week, I rode 20 miles in the Tour De Cure Finger Lakes,

I been lurking around, and now I am ready to participate. I have lots of questions, with so much to learn.

Welcome aboard! What kind of bike(s) are you riding?
Had a chance to visit Watkins Glen a while back. Would
like to go back again and spend more time. Our 1st time
was with a tour group and only had less than an hour to
enjoy the scenery:

I also did the Tour de Cure here in New York City, lots of fun:
