I guess that I would be considered a clydesdale. I am new to road biking, but not to bikes. I have ridden bmx for about 8 years and still do. I am 5'8 200 lbs. This is the heaviest I have ever been. I am 20 years old. I was wondering how long you guys think it will take me to get back to my normal weight of 175-180. My final goal being aronud 160, 150. I am very interested in road biking and have done a fair amount lately on my felt. I am doing all my research and just trying to learn. Also, Hi to everyone on the forum. I am hoping to learn a lot from everyone! Thanks. My name is patrick and I am from Jersey. YAY!:)

Hello and welcome to the gang. I don't know how long it will take you to drop you weight, but riding is a good step. It is great that you are focused on doing something about the weight gain before it gets to out of hand;like it has for some of us. The guys and gals here have been great help.

You could shed those extra 20 lbs pretty easily with a little tweak to your diet and refular exercise.
Don't be a stranger around here when you lose your clyde status ;-)
