One month ago I was 330 pounds and sitting around alot. I bought the family bikes, and quit drinking beer. Today I am at 296, and completed my month at 301 miles. I have been increasing the level of difficulty every day or so. To day I did the hardest ride yet. Not the longest but 7 hills each way that we see people walking up with bikes. It was 16 miles long and my avg speed was 13.3 both ways. I feel I accomplish something. Looking forward to a 30 mile ride tomorrow with my 11 year old. We both got new road bikes this week, and are really stacking on the miles. Im glad I found you guys for inspiration. Now I just gotta find a 3x jersey!
