If you haven't ridden in a while you might need a refresher so a flat wide trail possibly paved may be the way to go. I am sure after the first few minutes it will all come back to you as the saying goes. Learning to ride again might not be the biggest challenge you have to overcome.

Bicycle technology has come a long way since I learned to ride a bike. In my day you had to do all the pedaling there was no such thing as an electric bike. Nowadays you can pretty much get a bike that is custom designed for what you want to accomplish.
