Anything else we should know about you?
My first bike was a yellow 5-speed Schwinn with a banana seat. It was a present for my 7th or 8th birthday. I rode it constantly for about 10 years. It fell into disrepair and the local bike shop closed. I'm not much of a mechanic - so I rode my dad's 10-speed until it broke. I discovered girls and jobs (to pay for the dates) and drifted away from cycling.
My biggest regret in life is that I didn't ride much between about 14 and 43. About 3 1/2 years ago, I bought a Trek to rediscover my lost love. Well, I got a bit of a slow start, but I have lost almost 80 pounds (almost 50 in the last 16 months) and have about 3,000 miles on my Trek in 2008. My goal for 2009 is 3,300!
