hey, my name is jeff, i just got back into riding. i used to ride my bmx bike EVERYWHERE when i was a kid, but ya know got a car and friends and never looked back. but recently me and the girlfriend have been itching for new things to do and try and get in shape.
so i borrowed my brothers trek 3700 and i put about 100miles on it in a month, so i decided im gonna stick with it and get my own bike. my 24th birthday was yesterday and i went out and bought a new specialized hardrock sport
i love it and can't wait to take it on a real ride tommorow. right now im 5'9" about 260-265lbs. i would love to lose about 40lbs and just get in better shape. i've been riding 10miles about 3 or 4 times a week so far and im definatly going to keep it up. this forum looks like a ton of motivation and it's cool to see other fat guys on the trail, makes me feel good.
i have one question, do you guys perfer to eat before or after a ride? i've been mostly riding after dinner in the afternoon when it cools down.
