Welcome back John boy! I too have returned to riding about 5 months ago but after only a 30 year break. I learned about the same year as you did,1973 or so and rode for about 15 years before letting it drift away. It has come back quickly.

I learned to do a static mount with my pedals at 3 and 9 o’clock using a piece of 2x2 behind the wheel to keep it from rolling out behind me. That might be a simple easy way to get back in the swing of things.

Again welcome back! We need more old gals and guys back in the saddle.

Look into safety gear, the old bones heal a lot slower now. I am a lot more confident when I gear up. The days of riding in cutoff jeans and sandals are over for me.
