    Clydesdale Returns to Commuting

    Hi, I just joined, while searching for, "How to make a high powered head light." I have cycled to work, off and on for 35 years. My new ride is a short 35 minute sprint-twice a day, to/from work. I was 6' 3" & 205 in the 70s, so in June, I went back to riding to work, to add aerobics into my week. I would rather lift weights everyday, but then, its too easy to stay at 248 lbs (not good at 55 and a bad left knee). Since 6/1/09, I have dropped 20 pounds. I had two knee surgeries last year, so cycling has been the perfect PT. I want to drop another 30 pounds, to get 50 off these knees. The wife and I ride Hybrids, with 125psi Road tires on them. We may buy road bikes next. The other bonus to riding to work? We leave the cars at home!

    Welcome to BF.
    Road bikes are faster.
    You could get to work in 34.5 minutes on one.
