Hello everyone. I've been looking for a place to ask this question, and this seems like the right one.
I currently weigh 349lbs, and am currently on a strict diet (I started last week, and lost 16lbs already). Long story short, without going into details, I have a genetic disease that severely limits the exercises I can do. Fortunately, cycling is one of those I can do as much as I want . I've been pretty much "fat" my whole life and I decided to do whatever it takes to lose my extra 200lbs or so. Anyway, about my question.
A few years ago, when I was 16 years old, I received a bicycle I never really used. I'd love to start riding around town with it, but I think I might be too heavy right now to use it (I'll post a picture at the end of this message). Right now all I can do is exercise on a stationary bike. If I am indeed too heavy, I'd like to know when I could start riding this particular bicycle. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as well.
