You go, Stv! What a great story! And congrats on turning yourself around. I too have a similar story, at least with alcohol and letting my self baloon to 300#, but that's about me and not about what you've accomplished.Originally Posted by Stv
I should shut up and let you get peddling!
Wow!!! This story is SO inspiring! Thank you for coming out of lurk-mode, and sharing it with everyone. And good luck getting to the opposite shore. Clearly, YOU CAN DO IT!

It would have been nice to actually traverse the route from BC to NFLD.
Good example of the power of will power - keep it up
Although it doesn't sound as if you need any more inspiration, you might be interested in reading a book by Mike Magnuson which is entitled "Heft on Wheels".
Amazing what you've accomplished. I'm in awe. I really hope you keep us updated on this truly inspiring turnaround.
Great work, Steve, I'm 51 too, but have yet to admit that I'm not 19 anymore (My wife has mistakenly pegged my acting age at 14) This is my 4th year of "serious" cycling (how can it be serious, I'm smiling all the time?!) and have found this forum to be a great source of inspiration and information.
Great job on accumulating the kilometrage, too, but the good cycling doesn't end in November, it keeps going all year long. Check out the winter biking forum for more info!
