    Well, I guess I no longer qualify as a Clyde. I'm now 195 pounds. I used to weigh 375 pounds. I am 6'6" tall. I'm starting to look downright emaciated!

    Happy to report that I now have a helmet and will wear it to ride my bike. Four bucks at Goodwill for a Giro Havoc. Not a bad find at all. Now I can set a better example for the kids. ...

    Almost none of the loss from bike riding, though, as I only putter around the neighborhood once a week or so. More...
