New from Texas
Hi, I am new from Kingwood (just north of Houston), TX. These introductions are always hard so maybe I should tell you about my current training. I am an intermediate rider and have been riding about 2 years. Recently I have lost about 80 pounds riding my bikes and have gotten completely hooked. I am currently training for three rides in September / October 2012: Tour de Tahoe (72 mile Alpine), Ride for the Cure (100 mile), Bike Around the Bay (180 mile).
I have a few bikes now:
- ott CR-1 Team Carbon
- Cannondale r400 Aluminum
- Home built Fixie with drop bars and a 46 15 gearing
- Trek FX 7.3
One footnote - I am a diabetic and ride with Diabetes. Shameless plug for the Ride for the Cure.
Welcome to Bike Forums.
Bike riding is my diabetic medication.
I am on The Dynamo Team for the Houston Tour de Cure.
Welcome aboard. I'm in Ft. Worth, but I get down toward Houston occasionally to visit family there.
Howdy, good luck with your planned rides.
I am riding on the Red Riders team at the Tour de Cure. My A1C is now in normal ranges after biking and loosing 80 pounds.
Did you go to The Red Rider photo shoot?
No. I just signed up with the team about 1 week ago.
I just moved to Kingwood from the Dallas area, its good to know there are other forum members nearby trying to sweat off weight like me!
Welcome to Kingwood. I am in Bear Branch. Lots of good places to ride around here. How far do you normally ride?
