Please allow me to introduce myself...

It's about time I introduced myself. I've been around lurking all summer but haven't introduced myself yet.

My name is Steve and I'm almost 39. I am 6'3" and 240lbs, down from 265lbs from this spring. I live about 15 miles south of Cleveland, OH.

I took up riding a bike again since stopping when I got my drivers license, man I wish I hadn't!! I needed to lose some weight and get some exercise, the problem is, I can't motivate myself to do something I don't enjoy. Luckily, I have found that I really enjoy bike riding.

Last year I set two goals for myself for this year: Ride over 1,000 miles & ride 1/2 of our local MS150. I am please to say that I have done both. I have already signed up to ride both days of the MS150 for next year so I need to keep riding.

I'll work on getting a picture or two of me soon and post them in the picture thread.

Well, I guess that's it for now. Thanks for reading,

Steve

Welcome, Steve! I used to live in Broadview Heights. I didn't ride when I lived up there, though...

Congrats on meeting both of your goals!

Thanks for the welcome everybody. This is a great forum, very supportive, friendly, and educational. I look forward to checking it out everyday.

Becky - You used to live in Broadview Hts, wow, what are the odds? It's a real nice town, and only a couple of miles away from the towpath. The towpath is great to ride on when it's not too crowded. Soon it will go from downtown Cleveland to New Philadelphia, a total of about 101 miles. I just wish it was all paved, I hate the gravel.
