I havent posted on here in awhile, in fact, i havent read on here in awhile -- im actually a newbie to the whole cycling lifestyle! But back in late October early November i bought a Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc with all the bells and whistles! I rode the bike literally 1 time and said to myself "i will ride it again when i get a new saddle and riding shorts" -- well im an expert on Procrastination and Exercise is at the top of the list of my to-do-procrastination! Anyways, im here for 3 things:
#1) Advice on to-do's and not-to-do's for beginner cyclist
#2) Advice on good riding shorts - and saddles (my eyes are set on Brooks)
-- Im getting married in just about 3 months (May 10th) and want to drop from my 350+ lbs. down to something more pleasant! Im not expecting to lose 100 pds. in 3 months time (although i know it is possible..some may argue not healthy, but its possible) but i need encouragement to get out and cycle more on my lunch breaks at work, and to wake up early in the morning and hit the gym!
Reading some of the stories what you guys have done, excites me tremendously -- and to see the encouragment you guys give so freely to each other, has made me want to be apart of this "family" so intensely! Help me out fellas -
Thanks in Advance
Sincerely and Respectfully,
