Hi! I used to bike everywhere some years ago when I lived in Kansas, but since I've moved to Michigan I've been walking everywhere - better exercise (burns more calories) and the garage door came off the track every time I tried to get the bike out.
I've decided to go back to the bike. The government's stimulus check bought us a new garage door. Plus, I had twins last fall and couldn't walk while I was pregnant (I was as wide as I was tall), so I'm really out of shape now. And, with the twins, time is more important to me these days than burning calories.
Since I'm not as limber as I was when I bought my bike about 15 years ago (I'm 42 - why does it seem like the old-age sore joints suddenly appeared overnight???), the hubby said I could get a new one. I thought I'd join the bike forums to get some advice.
