Newbie from the OC
So after years of trying to hit the gym and ride the stationary bike and do the occasional weight lifting, only to lose interest after a few months, I decided I needed to find something that would hold my attention and be healthy. So this weekend I test drove my mother in laws Trek bike and I was hooked. Saturday went out and bought a Trek 2.3 road bike and yesterday took it out for a 25 mile ride from Seal Beach, CA to Huntington Beach and back.
I have to say I am hooked. Riding is such a rush. The speed on a road bike is incredible. At one point yesterday I was pushing 25 mph and it was great feeling the wind blowing on my face. Not to mention the scenery at the beach is beautiful. I think I may have found my new love that combines being healthy and getting in shape with something truly fun and exhilarating to do.
I just wanted to say hello and how great it is to find this very informative forum.
