Newbie here....plz be gentle.... :)

Hi all....

I am just getting back into "serious" riding after about a 10 year hiatus. Previous to this lay-off, I had ridden about 4000-6000 miles a year , between the time changes....mostly training for centuries(which I LOVE). Group rides of around 25-30 miles every evening at a 15-17 mph pace....

Well.....a LOT of things have changed over these 10 years..ahem..soooooo, I'm looking to drop this large bag of salt I've acquired over those years ) by riding again.....two kids have gone thru college and I've got the time now.....

I am 6'7" , 278 right now ......my goal is to lose 50lbs and keep it off , mostly by riding and diet....
My wife just bought a used Cannondale for me, much like the one I sold 10 years ago....so I'm pretty stoked about this whole thing.....wish me luck, and I'm looking forward to posting progress here....

You'll notice that bikes have changed a lot in the last 10 years.
