    A new life

    Hi guys, old fart here!! 62. I lost my wife 8 years ago, went into a HUGE black hole of depression. I gained 120lbs on my 6ft frame. I was a mess. With the help of good friends, my kids, I got out of the hole. I have lost 106 of those 120lbs and riding my bike has been a HUGE part of it. I have always had a bike around but now....Its my lifeline. I cant describe the feeling I get out on my old mountain Bike! I love my new life, I love my health, I love life. I hope to get lots out of this forum. Thanks for letting rant on here Mr, moderator.
