FINALLY getting back in the game

After a long layoff from back surgery less than two years ago and multiple failed attempts at getting back on the bike I have finally gotten back into a routine riding schedule. Today I took my new Giant full suspension for a road ride. I am by no means setting the world on fire speed or distance wise but I am riding enough to feel a difference in myself and it feels good. Tomorrow I am going to take my one of my road bikes for a little longer ride and see how I do. Anyway, you guys and gals on this forum inspire me with your success stories so thanks for helping more than you know to get this fat guy back on the bike.
