Back on a bike after 32 years-Female from Seattle

Felt the need to get back onto a bike, so I got myself a 2nd hand Schwinn that is garage kept.
I'm over 50, and it has been over 32 years since I last rode. I am so "Squirrely" that it is almost like re-learning.
I haven't dumped it yet. That alone is an accomplishment.
Once I get the hang of riding again, I think I'll invest in a properly fitted road bike. And something definitely not Pink.

Congratulations! You'll have an awesome time rediscovering how much fun it is to ride a bike, and you'll notice that you just... feel better!

Take your time, move back into it slowly, and when you're ready for a new rig, ask lots and lots of questions! I'm sure you will find all the
answers you need, and you'll find the perfect bike to go exploring on!

Happy Trails!

Alan

Welcome plum crazy. Glad you made it back to cycling.
Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the old timers. I'm one of them. i'm 67.
