    Hey from SoCal

    I've only been reading the forum for a few days and I have already gotten some useful information. I am not sure how long I'll stick around, or even how long I will ride a road bike, but my plan is to make it part of my life.

    The short(ish) story: I woke up one morning a couple of months ago and just felt plain FAT. I'm 40(ish), 5'10" and I weighed 237.5 lbs. I decided enough was enough. Since then, just by cutting from my diet starches (potatoes, pasta, rice , bread and chips) and high sugar foods, I have dropped 19 lbs. My goal is another 40. I play tennis regularly and decided I needed some more exercise. I asked a friend to help me pick a road bike and instead he loaned me one of his for a year. It is a SystemSix Team SI 2 C and it is beautiful! I started riding it this week and my hope is to ride for an hour in the mornings, 3 days a week to begin. Hoping to also start riding to work on Fridays (15 miles each way). We'll see.

    Regards,

    CaliforniaJed

    Welcome Jed to Bike Forums.
    Congratulations on the weight loss.
    Commuting is both fun and a challenge.
