    Tooting my own horn...

    Since the first week of March I have logged 2047 miles both commuting and riding in events to include a metric century. I lost 25 pounds, 1 pant size, raised just over $500 for charity and completed the metric in 4 hours and 5 minutes. My wife created a monster when she bought me that bike.

    Bells don't work round here so Hope the horn is a loud one.

    And What Bike? First metric in 4 hours is good---Forget the 5 minutes due to Traffic and the computer being wrong. 25lbs weight loss is even better.

    So what does the wife think of what she created?

    The more weight that comes off, the faster and farther you go and the more fun it is. Great job.

    The bike is a 2010 Merceir Galaxy.

    The wife thinks it's great. I don't think that she expected me to take to it as I have.

    You must be mistaken about the lost weight. We have been told repeatedly that it is impossible to lose weight by riding more.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Kudos, for sure.

    The weight loss is a pretty cool side effect, no? I've lost about 30-35 pounds and I didn't really even set out to lose weight. None of my pants fit any more.

    I think those things where you are are called mountains. Rocky Hills just doesn't quite have the same ring.

    Horn nothing, with a start like that, strike up the band! Good job.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
