Well as of Tuesday I've been a cyclist again! Just getting into the sport and joys of riding a bicycle again since my junior high days and it's really been an eye opening experience of how out of shape I actually am in (in my 30s). But I am determined to make this a life time change and just one of many other steps taken to get myself fit again. I always did enjoy my old dirt bike as a kid and early teen, so with a love for the outdoors, hiking, and camping I'm hoping that cycling will just be the final niche to get me really serious about my health.
So I picked up, at least what I think, a good starter road bike, a Schwinn Varsity 700c. I don't know if that was too much for a slightly overweight and under fit fellow as myself, but today I had a comfortable, albeit short ride. Just really need to get my breathing under control and work on endurance, but that's why I'm here on these forums for inspiration, tips, and help.
