Kind of a newb, but hit a milestone yesterday!
After starting a new job last year and finding out that I'd gotten back above 300# last year, I decided I needed to do something to lose some weight so I picked up a Windsor mtn. bike last summer. Living in Moab, I figured I'd do mostly road riding but I know I'd have to hit the trails occasionally
Unfortunately, just as I was getting some stamina and doing over 5 miles at a time, I broke my leg at work
8 steel screws, one plate, and 8 months later, I made 10+ miles for the first time in my life
Not much, but I'm pretty excited! I haven't lost much weight, but I'm feeling a ton better and hoping to start riding to work a couple of times each week (6.5 miles each way) here in a couple of weeks once I can spring for some new tires.
Years of wondering why people would want to ride a bike, I think I'm finally starting to get it
