Bronx NY newbie

Hello Everyone,

I am glad I was able to find a site to help me in my new hobby. I am pretty much brand new to the sport of "cycling" but I have riden a bike before, just never got serious about it.

Born and raised in the Bronx, I started out on a mongoose BMX when RAD was out. I never really graduated into owning a bigger (real) bike once I got a car. However, when I came back to the Bronx from some time in Rochester NY for college and life experience I found my dad had a Raleigh M55 that he brought to try and lose weight. I would ride the bike in the summers with my uncle every now and then. We would ride from our house to the beach and back a nice 17 mile ride but it was only a couple times a summer. The bike has been stored in the house for the last 3yrs and I need to get back into shape so I am resurrecting it and going to start riding on a regular and maybe commute to work in it.

So I am here to learn what I can.
