    Hello David and welcome to the forum.
    Could you post a pic of the bike in question or let us know the make and model.

    Depending on wheel size there's a number of road/path options, from those with a bit of tread to slick tyred.

    A good set of road tyres would help quite a bit. Consider puncture protection if you are a commuter.

    If you look on the sidewall of the tyres there will be a pressure range something like ' inflate to 35-65psi' try keeping them at the maximum pressure quoted.

    I am the opposite. I am an old cyclist who first started cycling at the age of 5. So that is 47 years on and off in the saddle. I have had breaks from cycling though of up to two years at a time. I remember back in the 1970s and early 1980s there were far less bicycle chain stores. Most were independent and gave a really good service. Halfords was one of the first bicycle chain stores but generally their bicycles and service was crap. I got through two Halfords bikes within a matter of months back in the late 1980s.
