Hi - been lurking around here for a bit - am a big gal, on the shy side and too self-conscious. I enjoy riding - well at least the little I have done - but I can't seem to get myself out of my place to ride. Tried finding a riding partner on craigslist and went riding once with someone from there but she lives far on the other side of town and schedules don't quite mesh. Do others that are larger have that issue? What do you do to actually get yourself out to ride alone? There are organized rides but I can't get to them until later next month when my car is repaired.
I know I just need to get out and ride - there is a nice river front trail just three blocks or so from me but I just can't get myself to take the bike out my apartment door and actually get out and do it. I wish something that I know is fun wasn't so mentally hard for me to do.
