Well I am 2 months away from my 71st B'day and I bought a bike last Nov 08.
It is a heavyish Sequoia Comp ( about 24 pounds ).
Early May I weighed in at 202 ( stark naked ) and I know the scale reads a bit low...
I have been riding a couple of 20 mile and 10 mile circuits every other day ( unless
it is raining). ( Thats one circuit per day .
I know my overall strength is steadily increasing along with my speed. Today I
averaged over 17 mph for the first 10 miles and finished with a 15 mph average
over the 20 mile circuit ( Yes the first 10 miles is a bit easier than the second
10 miles ).
After my morning ride today my weigh-in was 205...I am gaining weight
I thought that biking would be the way to drop some weight
