This is going to sound like a personals ad, which it is, but I need a partner to keep me motivated.
I started off posting on BF when I was about 225 lb. I started riding often, did a century, a few metrics and dropped to 185. Then my son was born and all hell broke loose. He required/still require a lot of attention due to some issues so I pretty much stopped riding in order to help take care of him and to give my wife a break. Since then, 2 years ago, I've gained all the weight back up to 220. I can't keep up with the bike club guys anymore nor with the BF folks I've met locally. I did do two metrics this year but that's it. I'd love to do at least one century next year and several metrics but the first step is to get back on the bike.
If you live in the East Bay and also need someone to motivate you once in a while, let me know. I hope to see some East Bay clydes and athenas on the road. Happy Holidays!
