Back to biking, looking for a new ride

Hi all! Well its been 25 years since I rode my bike. Used to be a racer, hung it up to get a real job and a life. Now a couple of friends asked me to go ride with them. I dusted off the 30 years old bike and got on the road. Man, what an experience. Still had my old crit cluster on the bike and could barely turn the cranks on any incline. Now back for a month and getting better and more addicted again. Can't believe the change in bikes and want to look at getting a new bike. I have never gotten out of shape but just didn't use the bike for it (weights instead). Just did my longest ride, 60 miles in just over 3 hours.....same ride I used to do in just over 2 hours....ah, age.
