Hello! New to bike commuting

Hello! After 3 years of telling myself I want to, I'm finally going to start bike commuting to work in upstate NY. Already appreciating all the tips and tricks I've read here!

Welcome to Bike Forums. What bike do you ride?

Thanks! Currently I'm riding a cheapy 2008 Schwinn Ranger. It's nothing special but it gets me riding. I'm actually fixing up a 1970's-ish Giuseppe Bianchi road bike that my dad gave to me. I'm pretty excited to get that on the road. It may actually be rideable as early as tomorrow.
