Rain out ride today, so thought I better join

I've been lurking for quite a while and since today will be basically a rain-out for riding here in Houston thought that I should go ahead and join the forum.

Got back into cycling after having a triple by-pass in 2013 (@ 65 yo) been using a hybrid bike in and around the area where I live in NW Houston. Usual rides are between 10 and 15 miles during the week ends and some week days. Longest ride to date has been 32 miles last Sunday.

Would ride more during the weekdays but have talked my wife into exercising (walking) so we usually wind up walking about 4 to 5 miles per day Monday thorough Friday.

I've now got the n+1 disease and not sure of what bike to get next. There are some mountain bike trails very close to where I live that the hybrid will not be able to run, would like to get a vintage steel road bike and also looking into a recumbent.
