    Hooked on cycling

    Started riding a bike in 2008 after not not riding for over 20 years. Lost a little weight, got motivated and set a goal of doing 1000 miles in 10 weeks. Did it in under 9 weeks, then under 6, then 5 weeks. 3600 miles in 23 weeks, avg of 26 miles per ride. Lost 103 pounds. This year have 2600 so far, 40 miles per ride. Live in Alabama, hoping to do some rides in other states - maybe trips like Jacksonville to Miami or similar rides. Happy riding! Rick

    Welcome to Bike Forums, Rick. Wow, I'm impressed with your riding and weight loss - great job!

    Check out the regional forums for rides in other states.

    Impressive - what bikes do you ride, do you ride alone?
