Howdy all,

I am Josh, retired Marine, father, husband and dude who abides. I have always loved riding but have far too often had every excuse not to. Started riding for a good number of years in high school when I ordered and bought a Schwinn mountain bike back in 1989. Used to ride for transportation when I was stationed in HI and loved it. Moved to MD and pretty much stopped. Retired now for about 3 years, found I had gained about 100lbs and decided to get my fat back side on the road again. Picked me up a Fuji Patrol police spec bike without the POLICE stickers and have been riding rain or shine every day for a couple of weeks now.

This is a pic of the ride from an online stock photo. I'll get an actual up some time soon.

My goal? Get back down to fighting weight (200lbs) and stay that way.

And the Actual ride:
