    Another Clydesdale checking in..

    Hey gang!!!

    My name is Jerry and I am 36 years old. I am 5'11 and checking in at 248 lbs. I purchased a bike a year ago along with the wife. I started out small only completing 4-5 miles at a time and worked my way up to 22-25 miles a day. I got stupid and stopped riding. I wish I had some kind of excuse, but I do not.


    I dont know what clicked the other day, but it did. I cleaned the dust off of my bike (trek 7200) and took it for a spin... Now I am finishing up my first week riding. I have a passion for it this time, I enjoyed it last time, but something is different this time..

    Anyhow, I am trying to change my diet and plan on riding everyday possible. My goals are for some charity rides this year and to start working up for the HH in 2010. I will purchase a good road bike in October (suggestions welcomed!)..

    Any how.. just wanted to say hello!!!

    Welcome to the herd, Smoked!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Thanks guys..

    I had a short ride this am before work, it felt great. Now I am sitting here thinking about my ride for tomorrow. I need to start working on a diet plan, unfortunately many years of bad eating has left me clueless on what to eat before and after a ride.


    It is fun though, I really am enjoying it this time!!!!!

    B/F member Doohickie is in Ft. Worth and there are several mid cities folks. We have a few Dallas and Plano area Clydes and Athena's as well. Have you checked out the Texas forum?

    A year and change is plenty of time to get ready.

    Thanks Vintage, I will look into that area as well...

    I have not been lurking long here and I am constantly reading and learning things!!


    I am trying to get my wife to start reading up in here as well. She started riding with me this time and she is a sexy Athena!!!!

    I guess that's what makes it cool this time around is we are both doing this together...
