I started riding last year. Rode 3 days a week in my basement on a trainer in the winter and then started
riding on the road when it warmed up. Then did something to my foot. Either my bike shoes or a bad pair of hiking boots. Anyways after that I stopped so I am going to give it another try. I had my shoes set up by the LBS, hopefully the foot pain wont return.
By the end of the year I hope to have lost 50 LBS and ride 50 miles in a day. WIsh me luck
