    Another clydesdale

    Another clydesdale here looking to get back into riding regularly, for fittness, health, and to justify the money I have sitting in the garage in the form of bicycles! I'm 43 230 lbs. 5' 10 used to be in pretty good shape, but a shoulder injury set me back. Now its time to stop using that excuse and get motivated. Thanks, Cacher308.

    I have two Treks. A fuel ex7 mtb, and 5000 road bike. When I'm on track I mix it up. Mtb for short rides after work. The road bike for longer rides on the weekend.

    You have the equipment for excellent riding, make time for longer rides and get encouragement from other cyclists (on these forums) and other friends/family. But mainly have fun along the way. Welcome.

    Hello cacher308, yes, do head over to the Clydesdales forum--lots of support and encouragement. No excuses here, just get out and ride on those two great bikes!

    Where are you located?

    Don't forget to check out the regional forums, then. That sounds like a great place to ride (except for perhaps in the winter ).
