I started riding seriously half a year ago for fitness reasons. I'm 5'7, and was weighing at 170 lbs, quite a bit overweight. Now I'm 128 lbs thanks to my riding. My first ride was a hybrid made by Diamondback. I switched tires a few times to go faster. I finally bought myself a real road bike a few weeks ago. I'm working on building up endurance and hope to eventually tour to another province in Canada. See you around in the forums.
