    Greetings from a fat out of shape newbie

    Hello!

    I just joined the forums and thought I should introduce myself. I'm 27 and am returning to bicycles after several years for fun and to try to get at least somewhat into shape again. To say I've been a couch potato the last few years is an understatement.

    I haven't ridden for approx. 3 years. I used to be a part of a small group at work that rode 10 miles a day on our lunch break. When I transfered to a different part of the company I couldn't take part in the daily rides anymore, lost interest, and sold my old Cannondale.

    I just bought an '03 Giant Yukon and hope to try some trails once I get comfortable on a bike again and can make it more than once around the block without being totally winded .

    Thanks for allowing me to be a part of the forums, I'll try not to clutter it up with too many dumb newbie questions!

    Welcome Wingspan! This is a good place to find encouragement.
    "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.

    Hello Wingspan - And welcome back to biking! Remember, the hardest part is getting back on the bike. The rest is easy! Do you have any cycling clubs in and/or around Brownsburg?
