Fresh after first bike ride in 19 years !!!
Hey guys i am new to this forum and kinda new to biking ...i am 33 years old 5.11" 342 LBS and last time i was on a bike i was 14 years old !!
about a year ago i was 404 LBS so i decided to do something about it ..i started watching what i eat and i started walking about 3-5 miles a day 4 times a week
it will be a year exactly on june 15th and so far i have lost 62 lbs and i stopped walking and dieting for like 3 months from Sep-Dec.
recently i have been looking into buying a bike to add biking to my diet and excercise plan but i didnt know if there is a bike that can hold my weight esp i dont have extra $400 to spend on a bike so i kept searching and reading reviews online and i stumbled into 29" Genesis Onex Cruiser Men's Bike, from Walmart
alot of people in the reviews said that they were around my weight or heavier and that the bike is holding good enough so far and i really like the way this bike looks so i went a head and ordered one from Walmart for $141 and i just got it today and i assemebled it about an hour ago and went for my first ride in 19 years
i did 2 miles in 15 min and it felt really good ..hopefully i will be able to do more with time when i get used to it ....i love the bike so far but i am not a bike expert i just love that its big enough for my weight and will see how it goes in the future
sorry for the long story but i was excited and wanted to share my story with you guys and hopefully this bike will help me loose more weight and enjoy riding .
i tried uploading pictures of the bike kept saying uploading file failed.
