Hi guys, What a great group..
I am a bigger rider and am glad to have found a bunch of the same, I am currently at 245lbs, last January(09) I weighted in at 325lbs, my goal is 225 with about 15% body fat, I am 6'2" just to get a picture fall into the endomesomorph type , Ill post pics soon,
I just picked up a bike to add to the fitness routine, I went with a hybrid (cannondale quick5) . I am a physiotherapist assistant and have turned into a fitness nut, I work out 3-5 times per week , and change up my routines very regularly, I swing kettelbells, weight lift, lots of cardio( bike , elliptical)and metabolic training. I maintain a vegitarian based diet , I use a portien supplement but try to keep eating as clean and natural as I can,
I am one of those guys that like to individualize basiclly everything they own, and my bike is no execption, I am looking to replace the pedals , not sure if I should go clipless or not , I am not crazy about needing a specialized shoes, I have never had them , is it worth it..? my goal are for some 100+km trips this summer I have a buddy that is getting back to riding aswell.
looking forward to learnig and sharing.
