    Hello from Philly.

    Hi everyone. I am 44 and from Philadelphia. I did my first century back in 02. I changed jobs and stopped riding. Thats when I gained a bunch of weight. Back in Sept I got back in the gym. I've gone from 221 pounds down to 165. I broke out my old Cannondale R1000 and have been riding any time the weather is nice. It is good too be back on the bike again.

    Hi Dredd, welcome to BF, good to have you aboard. Congratulations on the weight loss, that is impressive work. Nice looking C'Dale, I'm a CAAD 10 4 rider myself. You might want to check into the Regional Forums for the Philly area to find others that would like to set up rides and some other bike activities.

    Well this sucks. I broke a rib over the weekend at work. (I work in concert security)
    So, I guess I won't be doing any riding for a few weeks. (Or getting much sleep for that matter).

    Sorry about your injury, heal up and then enjoy the riding as a recovery aide, physically and mentally. Hope you aren't in too much pain, those broken ribs can make every breath and movement an exercise in pain.
