Congratulations on taking your first bike ride! Keep it up and eventually the pain, soreness, and aches start going away (3-weeks, for me).
Great to have a bike to ride. Even better to have a GOOD bike to ride. The weight of the older bikes tend to drag you down, make you more tired, and work harder...although, in some way, that's good...just don't let it get you feeling down.
I have retired my old (still in fantastic shape) Dorothy (like in Wizard of Oz) bike, and now ride a Trek Mountain bike on the paths. I'm saving my money to buy a good road bike, but until that time, I cruise on my mountain bike..toot, toot!!!
