Decided to write up a little history

Just a few weeks ago I decided that I would start a new blog site. I have done a few in the past, but never really stuck with it since in most cases it was about nothing in particular, or nothing I was passionate about. This time I started a Cycling blog. It is called The Incidental Cyclist and it's about cycling in and around Union County NC. Of particular interest to this forum, I would like to direct you guys to the History page. There you will find a short summary of my journey back to cycling and from 347 pounds to the 200 that I am today.

Please let me know what you guys think of it and if you have any suggestions please let me know too. I will be posting most of my bikes in the gallery pages, I don't have that part finished yet. It is still a work in progress.
