Hi! I'm a 32 y.o. female living in the Detroit, MI, area. I'm married with two young children. I'm 5'8" and 375lbs. I've never learned to ride a bike. Probably about 5 years ago (and about 100 lbs ago), I first borrowed a friends bike to try to learn to ride. I was having fun with it and ended up buying a mountain bike from WalMart for myself. At one point I managed to actually "ride" for about 20 seconds. It was pretty exciting! I don't remember what stopped me from going out and trying again. I probably used the excuse of being busy with too much work and school.
My husband really enjoys riding and I would love to learn to ride so we can ride together. Seeing that there are other heavy people out there who can ride, and that there are products and equipment to make it easier and make us more comfortable is really promising.
I just wanted to introduce myself and just say that I'm really happy to have found a group of people who are in the same boat!
