Hello BF.

Iím just getting back onto a bicycle after the better part of 20 years of cycling. A few years ago I peaked at 375lbs. decided it was time to make ďthe changeĒ. After 6 weeks a friend helped me find a used recumbent bike that was club rated and a few months later added an ellipticle to the home gym. A little more than 2 years later and Iím living around 220lbs. I have passed the recumbent to my father to rehab and get fit from heart surgery. I just sold my motorcycle and miss being outdoors on 2 wheels and figured it was time to do things the healthy way.

After reviewing these boards and discussing things with some friends that are avid road cyclist I made the jump and bought a Cannondale Quick 6 from my LBS. Looking forward to seeing where this new adventure goes.
