Hello From Ontario, Canada
My name is Mark and I live in Southern Ontario. I have been lurking here for some time and though I had better introduce myself.
I started riding bikes last year but really got serious this year when I decided I needed to lose a bunch of weight.
In March I started out on a treadmill and then onto a Trek hybrid with straight bars. An older Norco 12 speed road bike was next for a bit and then I decided to bite the bullet and get a newer bike.
So I found a 2010 Giant Defy 3 on Kijiji and that is the bike I am riding now. I also bought a roller trainer with a fork attachment to keep me pedaling in the wintertime.
I started out this March at 256 1/2 lbs and I have lost 63 1/2 lbs with 7 - 10 more pounds to go.
