New to forum
I am new to Bike Forums. My name is Cameron (Cam), I introduced myself in the main forum but figured I should do so here since this is where I will be hanging out the most. I am a 36yo, 400 pounder Clyde looking to get back into biking for fitness and fun. I love riding, and always have. I have a Trek 830 Mountain Track XL that I got back in 1994, it is still holding strong but I am beginning my search for my next bike. I had the tires on my bike switched to road tires at my LBS (assuming this is "Local Bike Shop", I have seen it on the forums a few times) since I am riding on the road more than off road now. I am of course more nervous these days that I will break a wheel or something on my bike but that doesn't slow me down any. I love the feel of the wind in my face and the challenge of the hills. I am looking forward to getting back into shape and into riding again. I just got my 9yo daughter really comfortable on her bike and want to be a good example for her. I am a single dad of 2 children, a 9yo girl and a 5yo boy so making time to get into a routine will be part of the challenge.
Anyway I don't want to be too long winded. I just wanted to say hi to everyone!
