    Although owning bikes for many years, I really didn't ride much at all between leaving Houston in 1981 and returning in 2005. So at age 65, I resumed riding. Very carefully at first. I have some advice from my present age of 77: Make sure bike is adjusted properly for your size. Buy the expensive tires for fewer flats. Don't do too much at first, take it easy. Get a BIG comfortable saddle. Have plenty lights & wear safety vest & helmet EVERY ride. Find shady routes. Expect motorists to do stupid things. Remember to carry on your person. I freeze about 1/4 of a plastic water bottle, then fill with ice cold water & place in Koozie for 1 or 1-1/2 hours cold water; better than the expensive water bottles. (YETI is anti 2A!)
    Like with boating, tell someone where you plan to go and time to expect you back. leVieux
