Hi from Pleasant Lake, Mi

Good afternoon one and all,

I used to bike when I was growing up as a kid, but got away from it when I went in the military and got married. I let life get in the way. Well, now that I am 50 and in need to shed some extra baggage that i carry, I broke out my bike I got as a birthday present three years ago and tried to ride it around the lake. Well, I made it, but realized that I am so far out of shape.

So, I am here to listen, ask advise, seek help & motivation and try to get back in shape through getting back on my bike.

So, here are my details.

Where are you from? Pleasant Lake, Michigan.
What do a I ride? I have a 26" Mongoose Mountain Bike. (Probably not the best for street riding, but its what I have.)
How long have I been riding? When I was a kid, from a young age to just before graduation and going in the military. Then there was a "LONG" pause and just last week, broke out my bike to try my look once more.
Anything else that you should know about me? Probably, but nothing comes to mind.

Hey Squatcher,

Put on some slick tires.
When you get tired of the rides.
Get a road bike.
