Little old lady from Massachusetts

I live in Brooklyn now and just completed my first ride to work (in Queens) and back, about 9 miles each way except for getting lost.
I have a nice little sissy Dahon folding bike, just right for a 63-year-old 5-foot-tall lunatic. It has a generator and also one rear blinker. I also wear a visibility vest I used to use when running.
I got some tips on what to use for lighting and how to get maps from bikeforums, which was very useful -- thank you all for the store of information. I think someone should write a little paper on how to hook up the lights to generator, though. If not for high-school physics, I would not have been able to do it, as there were no instructions.
The ride today was fantastic. It was a windy day, sunny in the morning and dark by the time I went home. My bike needs a number of adjustments and this was the best way to find out!

Welcome.

Lunatics are very welcome at the 50+ forum, if you have an interest!

Glad to see you finally decided to move to the big city. Welcome to the Forum from a transplanted NYC'er living in AZ.
