I've been lurking here for 3 or 4 weeks now, and figured now is a good time to introduce myself. I've had my new bike just over a week now and after a week of pain, today I had my 'eureka moment'. I've been pushing myself a bit harder every day with the intention of beating 20mph on the way home from work by the end of the week (and so far failing). This evening I managed a 22.4, only just dropping to 20 or so before having to brake for the turn to home and it felt *brilliant*. Think I'm hooked
It's been great to see the level of encouragement on this forum - and just how friendly and supportive you are. I'm 5'11" and currently weighing in at 380 lbs which came as a bit of a surprise at my last doctors appointment, so I figured it's time to do something about it before I hit 400.
