    Forum Proposal: Fitness Cycling

    I think I'm retiring from commuting and "aggressive" cycling, and am morphing into more of a fitness cyclist. You know, the guy that gets home from work and grabs his bike and does 30 minutes (or however long) of "aerobics" in the neighborhood. I'm 61 now and think I'm losing interest in centuries or mountain passes etc. There are a couple of forums that it looks like my new "style" of riding may fit in (Recreational is one, perhaps the over 50 -) but they're not quite. In my city I see a lot of people just out on bikes, getting their aerobics, in the same vein as walkers or joggers.

    Just an idea, saying "no" won't hurt any feelings -

    Very smart move imho. No sense killing yourself. Life is too short. Besides, that will leave more time for fishing.

    Cycling, as a whole already promotes fitness. We can't get too specialized in individual topical forums without ultimately making the forums too complex to survive. Also, wouldn't "Fitness" fall under training and nutrition?

    ↑↑↑↑ Thanks for your thoughts ↑↑↑↑ Like I said, no biggie. I agree that the more complex a forum becomes, the less attractive it is.

    Actually, now that you mention it, Training and Nutrition is exactly what I was thinking. I don't know why I missed it . . . duh . . .
