Hi, my name is Tom and I am new to the site and bicycling. I never thought of cycling as a "fun" sport until now! I got into cycling do to a car accident and suffered a rare stroke due to that accident. its been 7 months now and after losing everything i have, and no job, i continued to come up with things that i could do to help someone else with the time on my hands. I started cycling to lose the weight that i picked up due to doing nothing and fell in love with it! i want to get involved in different fund raisers and at the same time get myself back into shape.
