New member saying Hi

Hi Guys,
new to the forum and to the wolrd of biking.
well, had a bike in my early teens, a few years ago now ! (im now 61)
then bought another one probably over 12 years ago now, a Saracen tufftrax 21 speed mtb.
never really used it that much but havind decided back in January that i needed to get fit i have lost 2 stone and got my bike back on the road a couple of months ago !
had 2 new tyres fitted and the gears (Shimano sis 7) set up and stuck a better sadle on it and off i went !
it has done more miles in the last couple of months then it ever did in the last 10 years !
just not keen on road riding, i tend to stick to canal towpaths.
need to find some (not too difficult) rides around here in Shropshire.
