returning to cycling

hello, mike here, i've decided to get back on a bicycle after about 15 years. i used to ride daily, but moved to western oklahoma and between the farm dogs, 30 mph winds and a new baby, i got lazy and just quit riding. i just moved to salt lake city (last may), and decided to start commuting and pleasure riding again. any way, my budget is pretty tight, but i just scored a 1989 schwinn prelude in very decent shape for $20! woo-hoo! about all it needs is to have the wheels trued to be road worthy.
nice to meet you all and i'll be around with lots of questions.
