I first came to this forum because I saw a reference to the carfree thread on the Simple Living Network forum a long time ago. There is so much info on this site that I am spending way too much time here!
I am a 45 yo married woman with three grown kids. We live in Kentucky in a rural area. I am out of shape and overweight and have read that the key to sticking with an exercise program is to find something that you like to do. I loved riding a bike when I was a kid but then life happened, got married, and had kids and riding fell by the wayside (not funny, I know). Lately, I have been really wanting to ride again. I have been trying to figure out what kind of bike I need for a while but I am still in the research stage (and still very confused!). I told my husband that I wanted a bike and he told me to get one so I smiled and told him that I was not talking about a $79 one from one of the marts! He asked how much a bike was and I told him that, from what I could tell, from a few hundred bucks to several thousand! He has decide to ask more questions before being so nice from now on!
I also have recently taken up knitting hence the user-name knit-r-ride....I am really not good at making these up!!!
