Returning to Road Biking!

It's been 15 years since I've owned a road bike!

I'm back to riding and looking forward to getting back in shape.

I am about 5-10 pounds overweight and want to get back in shape by riding and by exercising more regularly in general.

5 to 10 lbs. should be pretty easy to get rid of once you get on that bike! I am sure you will accomplish your goals. What bike will you be using?
