This has probably been a thread many times before, but I wanted to go on record that on my next birthday - about 6 weeks from now - I plan to ride 65 miles! Now, that might not be a challenge for many of you, but since I've only been riding for about 4 months - and 4+ months ago, could hardly stand up and walk (because of the adverse effects of Lipitor) and weighing 260 pounds. It will be a REAL Challenge for me. I currently am riding around 100 miles a week with the longest ride so far being 25 miles and have lost almost 38 pounds. Figure if I take my time, I can get the 65 miles before totally wearing out. Besides, it will give me a good excuse to have Italian food for dinner!!! Oh - and birthday cake!
So, I challenge some of you other riders to 'Ride Your Age' and post your successes here!
