Hi from the Great White North.

Hi Everybody,

Jut reentering the biking world after a few years of being away. Looking forward to getting back into the game mainly for weight loss. I'm 5'11 270lb fat/stocky and with a goal of 200lb. My current bike is a Fuji Cross that might have 40 miles on it. I live in Northern NY so the bike weather is only for about 8 months tops so I need to stop procrastinating and get back into the saddle.

Hello, welcome to BF, good to have you join in with us here. In addition to No1mad's advice, you should look into the Clydesdale and Athena Forum for ideas and some super support in using a bike for weight loss and control. Cycling has helped me lose 50lbs since last July, and still easing down, main thing is to ride regularly and watch what you are eating carefully. The C&A Forum's members are very knowledgeable as well as friendly, and can help guide you in your work on loss and control. They are all doing the same thing you want to do/accomplish. Best wishes on your journey, I hope that cycling can be a part of it.
