Greetings from Connecticut

Howdy!

Just starting to get back into riding bikes. I haven't hopped on a bike in probably 30 years or so. Things have changed recently to let me go back to looking at bikes. My job has moved a LOT closer to me (under 10 miles) and with gas being so high I'm looking for alternatives to get to work. I was gifted a 1972 Schwinn Chicago that has some rust on the rims but overall looks good. So my plan is to fix her up and get her roadworthy and start riding in the late summer/fall. I have several parks near me with paved areas that I can practice on before making the dive into commuting to work.
