Newbie from Ohio

I am very new to cycling. I live in Central Ohio. On March 1, 2010 I weighed 409lbs, as of this morning I am down to 335 lbs. I have been cycling for 4 months now. I started on a Trek 7300 hybrid and then moved to a Trek 1.5 road bike,

I am hooked. I ride at least 5 days a week, 18-25 miles per day and a try to do one ride of 30 miles twice a month. I am addicted to say the least... I am still a very big guy but I feel great and I truly think this is a lifestyle change.

My goal is to complete a 50 mile ride in October and next year I want to try a century ride... seems daunting after writing it down.

BTW: this forum is full of great information and useful advice.

I live about nine miles west of Marysville but I am in Columbus once a week for bike parts or to do some shopping.

I am definately addicted to cycling.
