Hello all: I'm getting back into cycling after a better than 15 year absence. I'm 45 6'3 and 228lbs I was up to near 250lbs at one point. I've made some major changes in my diet and lifestyle and want to incorporate cycling into the mix. I bought a Gary Fisher Montare about 2 years ago but never really rode the bike, in two years I put 47 miles on it. I still have it and picked up a Trek 2100 road bike for long distance rides, ( once my cardio improves) and a Giant Cypress DX comfort/hybrid for riding with my kids who have Trek mountain bikes.
I started out with 5 mile rides and am up to 30+ my goal is to do STP (Seattle to Portland) next year. My brother and a mutual friend are planning on riding Canada to Mexico in 2009 so I had better get with the program.
I'm looking forward to meeting new friends on here as we support each other in reaching our fitness goals.
