I joined the forum just yesterday (spent 4 hours reading posts) and was glad to see others in the same boat as me. I am 55 years old and 310 lbs.
Obviously, one of my goals is to lose wieght, but simple transportation when RVing is also a main objective.
I have tried walking, and enjoy walking, but my knees wont alow me to walk more than about 3 miles at a time.
I came very close to buying one of the $59 Walmart bikes last week, figuring that $50 would be no great lose if it didnt work out. Heck, just spent $54 on a meal for 2 yesterday and my digestive system has already taken care of that..LOL
I have learned from reading this forum that I should visit a Bike shop and get a real bike with real service.
