I'm looking for other clydesdales (200+ lb.) bicycle riders who would like to start a group here in Richmond for larger riders.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Thanks Tom. By the way, just wanted to congratulate you on your work with Tour De Cure. My wife is an insuline dependant diabetic so I know the effect it can have on a persons life. We bought her a new Gary Fisher and hopefully she will be pedaling for a cure soon also!

Cool! No problem, by the way on riding for the cure.....

I'm technically diabetic myself as is my wife! It affects us directly!

Good to hear about the wife riding soon as well. She will really need to monitor those blood sugars, especially in the early stages as insulin dosages will change and sugar levels will swing if she doesn't pay close attention, and carry some glucose tabs for emergency. I'd also suggest she wear a med-alert tag or bracelet while riding.
