Howdy from TN
I'm from Hendersonville, TN just north of Nashville. I'm not mean, it's just a nickname my friends gave me, kinda like calling a fat guy Slim. I've ridden on an off since I was a kid, I'm 29 now. My current bike is a Cannondale M400 mountain bike that I bought used locally. I had one just like it in college, but it was stollen and I've been too busy with work to do any riding since then.
I decided to get back into cycling to get excercise, loose weight, and just get away from the day to day stress. I'm 6'2" tall and around 235lbs, so I guess that puts me in the clydesdale category. I don't know what my ideal weight would be, but I'm thinking around 200 would be healthy for me. I've already dropped a couple holes in my belt and will soon be punching a new one.
I've been riding my MTB at least 4 times a week since I got it. At first a 1 mile ride would kill me, now I've been doing 6 miles everyday on the road and could probably go a little further. I've been enjoying the road riding much more and am looking at getting a nice road bike. I've set a goal for myself to get the road bike. Once I can ride 20 miles on the MTB on roads, I'll treat myself to a brand new road bike. I've just been looking at the LBS and I'm leaning towards a Specialized Roubaix Elite.
So, that's me in a nutshell. Another fat guy, finding a fun way to exercise.
