Hi, I just found this forum, it was recommended to me by someone on the Gear Page, my favorite Musicians forum. I'm new to riding, I started a month ago as recommended by my Doctor as part of a weight loss thing I'm doing. I shopped around for a Bike to fit someone my size, 6'3" 300 pounds and after trying out more then a few, I ended up with a Trek Hybrid.
The first night I went riding I barely made it one mile and felt like I was going to pass out. Out here it's all country roads with hills, so a mile is a work out. Well after a month, I'm up to 6 miles, a few night's a week and I put just over 50 miles on the bike now and I'm really enjoying riding.
I joined the forum to get advice on better riding and ways to work up to going further each week and just all around bike stuff.
