Looking for Vancouver riding buddy
Hey folks, I'm looking for a riding buddy in the Orchards/NE Vancouver area.
Me: 35, female, really out of shape, fat.
I've been an avid cyclist all of my life, but after being hit by a car in 2004 (and nearly dying) I was afraid to ride. My bikes have gathered dust for six years, but I want to get back into shape. The threat of obesity-related disease is a bigger threat to me now than being hit by a car, so I've been riding by myself for a couple weeks, but it's kinda...well, lonely. I need a riding buddy, but I can only do MAYBE 2-3 miles per every other day or about 45 minutes at a moderate pace at this point. So, if you're a gal trying to get back in shape too, and you live in the Orchards/NE Vancouver area, please contact me. I also go to the 24-hour fitness and swim on my off-bike days if you want a gym buddy too.
