Just Starting outside DC

Hello!

My name is Matt and I just picked up this '85 Univega Gran Rally from Craigslist. This bike has me excited to start riding! I honestly havent ridden a bike in 7-8ish years? Part of the reason for my excitement came from lurking on this forum for a while, so thanks! You may have started a new addiction Already looking into replacing the pedals, giving the bike some much needed TLC, and accessorizing lol. I live in Falls Church VA, just outside of DC and there are a couple of trails right around the corner which will make my commute easier and give me plenty to explore. Have I told you I'm excited? lol

Welcome to Bike Forums, Matt.

I see that you've already found the Classic & Vintage forum so you're off to a great start.

Welcome! Even if you haven't ridden in 7-8 years, you'll see that it's like... well riding a bike! You really don't forget.

I just signed up for the forum too, and live in DC. The trails around here are great. Custis, W&OD, Four Mile Run, Mt. Vernon Trail, and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Trail are some great places to start. If you're up for a day tip, Gettysburg is really fun too.
