Hello out there,
Just thought I'd say hi. I'm new to adult cycling. I haven't been on a bike since I was 12, when I had a pink, single speed Huffy with banana seat and streamers!
I bought myself a 2006 Trek 7300 Hybrid about 3 weeks ago, and I love riding it. I've been going out nearly everyday. I'm now up to 11 miles in 90 minutes, which is pretty good for me, considering that my routes contain some pretty steep grades.
My goal with cycling is cardio health first and weight loss second. Over the next 2-3 years I would like to loose about 50 lbs. I'm in pretty good general health, no high Blood Pressure or high cholestoral. I'm just out of shape, but live a pretty active lifestyle with a physically demanding job.
I live in Denver, so if any of you bike the High Line Canal or Cherry Creek Trails and you see a cyclist on a Trek with bight Florescent Yellow bike shoes, feel free to say hi! (but please don't laugh if I subsequently crash!)
