    Hi

    I'm pretty new to the bike riding thing. I've tried different kinds of exercise and couldn't find anything that I enjoyed. I recently purchased my first bike since age 10 and I've been riding like crazy! My plan is to lose lots of inches and pounds this year. I didn't buy a hightech bike or an expensive one. I want to make sure I'll keep this up, when I prove to myself I can do this, I'll get a nice one.
    Nice to meet you all

    Well, hello and welcome to Bike Forums!

    Be sure to check out Clydesdales forum. I don't know if you are actually a CLyde, but we have a pretty active weight loss through cycling community there!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Mate, I was in exactly the same boat as you, except I stopped riding when I was 13, not 10. In the two months since I bought my bike, I've lost six pounds, my belt is back in its smallest buckle-hole (first time in a long time) and I'm loving riding in a way that I never ever loved the gym .

    Go for it!
    The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the
    living tissue of the city. Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable;
    moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving the buildings as mere
    islands of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic.

    Hello RNBiker, don't be leery of visiting the Clydesdales forum. As Tom said, even if you don't fit the traditional definition of a Clyde/Athena, it's a great support group. I see you got yourself a Next cruiser-- do you stick to just the bike paths? The sore bum goes away after a few weeks--if it doesn't though, you may need to check into a different saddle. As a travel nurse, do you travel enough to make your next bike a folder?

    Welcome to BF!
