Joe Barging in

Hello to all

I live in the Central Valley of California.
I have been riding for years but took some time off my bike due to the commute from heck, 2 hours each way on a train.
My Doc said loose weight or die so I needed to start exorcising. Riding my bike to the train then from the train to work fits the bill. I do about 10 miles a day and building up to more and more.

I ride:
Schwinn Super Le Tour
and a Specilized Rockhopper

Not at the same time.
Joe

That's cool. My friend who I sometimes ride with got a similar message from the Doc. It's done him a world of good to get out on a bike again and shed the extra pounds.

Good luck mate and stick at it - you WILL grow to love it!!!

If you ride them at the same time, you lose twice as much weight!

Welcome.
