Hi from Riverside, CA

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to biking. I purchased a 2007 Specialized Hardrock Sport for riding and losing weight. I used to be real active 4-5 years ago and I'd like to get back into shape. So far I've just been riding on the roads around my neighborhood (these are tough enough), but eventually I'd like to get fit enough to ride some trails.

My short term goal is to be able to go back and forth from the local bike spot - it's only 2 miles away but I can't make the climb back uphill yet.

Hello dyn4mike3, if you are in Riverside, you have access to a vast network of trails. Don't worry about the climb back up--hills are good for you. See my username .

Eventually you will start to enjoy hills. Really!

Welcome to BF!
