    Hello

    Hi everybody. Just a quick introduction. I will be 45 this May and have been of my bike (Lemond) for nearly 3 years now. After getting quite fat and miserable, I have decided to get back into cycling again which I did love but lost passion for reasons I am not sure of. I rode the 24 Hr of Booty in Charlotte, NC about 3 years ago and a number of charity rides (Tour DE Furniture, Tour of Tangle wood, MS 150 break away to the beach) I must admit, I am kinda scared of getting started so I have my bike stripped down and getting ready to give her a good clean. Any motivation will be much appreciated.

    Thanks for reading

    Look in the mirror. That's what I do for motivation.
    Good luck getting back into riding and with the weight loss.

    Got pics of the bike?

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle

    welcome to the forums.
    goodluck with getting back into cycling.
    my advice is if you have cold winters then try to ride through them if u can. I find im more motivated for the warm months after the cold ones.
    Just grab a helmet and ride. hmm... cant think of when that wouldnt work.
