Hey there from the greater Sacramento, California area.
Very nice to find this forum here.
I bought my first bike (as an adult) about a year and a half ago, and was riding regularly but 4 months ago wrecked my shoulder and was off my bike for months! Back on the bike now and back on track to lose some more weight (and, sadly, some that I'd already lost but mysteriously found again!)
I am 6' and currently 245 lbs, goal is 180 lbs.
I ride on local residential roads, nearby urban bike trails (paved, thank you!) and sometimes on busy Sacramento streets.

I loathe hills and love early mornings. And I love that there is no snow where I live = year round biking.
