Sayin' Hello

Just wanted to say hey. I've been lurking for a few and although I barely qualify as a clyde at 6' 220 lbs, I think you all are pretty cool!

You make me sick coming in here and calling yourself a Clyde when you only weigh 220.

Welcome! I just wanted you to have someone tell you you're too skinny, when so many people will tell you you're too fat to ride a bike. I weigh a hundred pounds more than you and I know there are people riding that weigh a hundred more than me.

Enjoy riding and don't let anybody tell you what to do. Anybody can offer suggestions, but you're the one who decides what goes on your bike, what you wear, where and when you ride, etc.

Hey... I'm 220 and I'm a Clyde!
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
