    Coming next Saturday...

    So, I get my new bike next Saturday. The last bike that I bought was a Norco BigFoot, just to tell you how long ago that was. About 215 lbs ago actually. Now I'm sitting pretty at 360, down from 385 just over 2 weeks ago. To my knowladge that's the highest I've been, and to be honest I think it's my turn around point. I haven't really been on a bike in about 15 years but I imagine falling off will be just as easy now as it was then. However, I did drop a bit more coin for this bike as a precaution for my weight and also as an added motivator to get out and ride. Any one have a good program for someone getting back in the saddle. I used to be a "go big or stay home" kinda person but I think that I am getting to old for that and I need to kinda ease in. Basically, cause last time I went big, I got hurt and had to stay home (hee hee).

    Will post a picture of me and the new ride next week,

    and thanks in advance for all you tips!

    The best ride program on the planet.....get out and ride, and have fun.

    Later, you can decide if you want to do serious training for a specific ride discipline, but for now, I'd just as soon see your butt in the saddle and a big grin on your face, cranking out some miles.

    I weigh about as much as you. When I started I rode 5 miles a day for a week, then I bumped the mileage 5 miles every week. After a month I was doing 20 miles a day. I still strive for 20-25 miles a day just because that is all I have time for.
    14,000 miles and rolling...

    Thanks guys, I'm looking forward to getting out there. There are quite a few rice patties around me and they are very flat. I think that's what I'll tackle to start with.
