    Back Riding After All These Years!

    Greetings!

    I am a 48 year old newbie! In my youth I lived on a bike. I have always had a bike as long as I can remember, but the last 7 years I had a poorly sized mountain bike that is sitting under several inches of dust in the garage. I very recently purchased a comfort bike from a local shop here in South Florida.

    Five years ago I was in a bad accident, and due to injuries, I have been fairly inactive since then. Needless to say I gained a BUNCH of weight in the last 5 years, and I finally decided to deal with the pain and get back to where I once was. I have already lost 20 lbs., and I plan to get back to the weight of my college days. I figure if I lose enough weight I can get on a mountain bike and take it to the next level.

    I have set my goals, an I am already doing research on the MTB.

    It is supposed to rain here in South FL over the weekend, but I plan to squeeze in some miles, if not I'll be at the gym.

    I am looking forward to your help with my research, and hopefully will find some folks in the same situation as myself.

    Hello JaySea59, you are certainly not alone with getting injured, gaining weight, and wanting to get back to riding. Enjoy whatever MTB you get!

    Don't forget to check into the Southeast regional forum--there are a lot of Floridians in here .

    Welcome to BF!
