I started at 6'1" and 350#. I'm down about 55# and feel great. Weight Watchers and riding.Originally Posted by gbaca
I signed up for a Century here in NY and started training for it by riding to work one day then home the next. Now I'm doing both trips by bike and I jones for it on the days I can't ride. I never understood before what people meant when they talked about that high from hard aerobic exercise.
(The Century was in May and it was a piece of cake. Well, it was a rice cake with peanut butter...)
Oh, as far as bike issues... intuition says your wheels/tires. I have not noticed any real problem here in >2,000 miles this spring. My biggest thing is that as I get more limber and less thick around the middle, my bike fits differently. I'm starting to wonder about fit.
One other thing, make sure you are running your tires at max psi. With the extra mass, pinch flats will be more of an issue if/when you hit potholes, etc. (I only buy tires that let me run over 100 psi.)
