    Bike Boomer

    Hello to everyone! My name is Jim and I'm 55 years old. Just got back into riding my bicycle this past summer. I have a Shimano bike that my son, who is serving in the Army, had given me. I live in West Michigan and plan to ride in the winter. I have an older single speed bike for the winter months. My main reason for starting to ride a bicycle again is to improve my health. I weigh 235 lbs and have high blood pressure. I have been looking around on blogs and am encouraged by learning that others my age and older, with like conditions and worse than mine, have improved their health. I discovered that I really love getting out there and riding my bike. I get a sense of freedom and enjoy the fresh air in my face. I won't get carried away in this introduction thread but I am just glad to be a part of this forum. I look forward to learning from others here and making connections. Thanks for welcoming me and hope to see you in the threads! ~Jim
