Recently wanted to get into mountain biking to try and get back in shape. Been out of the Army for 3 years now and have been struggling to get back in the shape I was when I served. Friend of mine told me to give road biking a try so here I am. Been riding about 3 weeks now and I am HOOKED. Over the last 3 weeks of riding i have had so much fun riding. did 27 miles yesterday in 1:45. by no means a rock solid time but its a start for me. Such great excercise and stress relief. I bought a cheap $400 bike of BD just to make sure this wouldnt be another one of my 3 month hobbies that try to fill the void I have from leaving the Army but i have to say i think i found what im looking for. If i stick with it till winter the plan is to buy a frame and build my own bike and learn more about the sport along the way.
any suggestions about anything at all are greatly appreciated. i think i may subscribe to a bike magazine to help me learn about brands, tips and everything else.
