Hello from San Diego

I'm a transplanted New Yorker living in Southern California in my mid-50s. I used to ride seriously 25-35 years ago, then neglected it while chasing rats in the rat race in hi tech in Silicon Valley. Got myself way out of shape, up to 285 lbs, am now under 215 through diet and swimming, and am getting back on the bike to get myself back into better condition now that outdoor swimming weather is ending - goal is to get to somewhere between 160-175 sometime next year and then to be able to maintain it. I own two great ChroMoly frame bikes from the 1980s which I've just put back into riding shape after being virtually untouched for the past 15-20 years.
