Greetings from East Lansing

Hello Everyone,

Been lurking the Clydesdales forums for awhile. Have finally had enough of a sedentary lifestyle and wanted to get active again. Had a bout with sciatica that took me 5 months to be pain free. Didn't think biking was possible for my girth 6'5 385. Reading the inspirational stories of so many getting out and making positive lifestyle changes inspired me to get on the road. Picked up my bike today and went for a brief maiden voyage. It was 42 degrees and the wind whas whipping at 30 mph. That 2 mile journey, however, re-ignited something in me. I used to ride everywhere when I was younger. I'd do 30 mile rides constantly but have not been on a bike in 20 years.

Anyway....just wanted to say thank you for the community that is here. I look forward to being a part of it for a long time to come.

Kevin
