Hello everybody! My name is Jordan. I've been riding for just over a year off and on...but mostly off. I work in law enforcement. Since I've been out of the academy and until recently I've worked 2nd shift. It seemed like I didn't have any time to do much of anything. Now I work night shift and it works out great for me to come in after work at about 7:30am and go for a bike ride. So that's what I've been doing.
I need to lose quite a bit of weight. My doctor told me that I have a really large frame and that I need to get my weight down to about 230; I'll have to lose about 45lbs for that. I'm 5' 11" so I could weigh less, but the doc said I shouldn't go below 200-210 based on the size of my frame. So I'm looking to lose weight and get in better shape for my job. I ride a Fuji Newest 3.0 and my normal bike ride is 15 miles...I can do it in 60-80 minutes.
I'm really looking forward to becoming a part of this site...it looks great!
Welcome, I lost 40 lbs opening a restaurant, lots of walking and snacking instead of 3 square meals, I am 6' 220 (I gained back from where I was) but exercise and more smaller meals works, I now am back to sitting 10 hrs a day (sold restaurant) doing web design so I walk or bike with my wife every morning. Good luck!

I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany. Just ordered a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105 to replace my "destroyed" CAAD 10 2.
Good luck with the weight loss.
Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the Atlanta area folks in the Atlanta/Decatur thread.
And when your Fuji needs service or when you need cycling stuff, stop by the shop I work at, Intown Bicycles.
