I'm new to biking. I'm really just starting to do it because I love to be outdoors and I'm overweight and need to get fit so I can feel better. I use to be a size 8 and now I'm a size 18 within just a few years. I'm ready to get back to the old me. I'm the kind of person that needs a support group kind of. It's hard for me to get out and do things without someone to do it with. But luckily a couple of girls from work said that they would ride with me. I'm really going to try hard to do this. I just have a cheap bike from wal-mart to start out with. I'm not sure if that will matter or not. Anywho...that's about it.
