Hello Riders, I am new here first entry in my part

Hey there. Old guy here
Just got an old road bike and decided to join this forum to learn more about bikes and stuff. For few years I have been riding my commuter bike, which is a mountain bike that I had changed the tires to be more suitable for city riding.
Then I got together with a group of people to ride once a week in the city, I think the purpose of the rides is to show the city government that there are cyclists in town therefore we all need to learn to share the road. The group was formed like four or five years ago but I just joined. To make the story short lots of these people ride beautiful vintage bikes from the 70's and 80's and they have been insanely distracted in my head so I had to get me an old bike like that too.

O.k the bike I got it is an old bike but nothing special just an entry level Peugeot vitesse bike 12 speed. Like I said it is nothing special but rides good. I have just rode twice so far 12 miles Saturday and like 10 miles Sunday. I am not sure if I should spent money in this bike or just leave it as is. But for sure it is not picture ready yet and that is why I am not posting pictures here, maybe I will in the future.

Hope to hear from you.

Welcome to Bike Forums. How old is old? I'll be 70 next month and there are many others here older than me.
Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the old timers.

Thank you for the welcome, I will be 50 in ten more years, but I hang out with all adult ages. I ride with the guys from the Lansing Bike Party if you are ever around here joing us for a ride.
