new Clydesdale on the block


I am in the process of learning to ride a bike again. I am a big guy and need to lose about 75 pounds to get back to a reasonable weight.
I bought an older used bike but it was so uncomfortable that I came here and read up to see what would be better for me.
I now have a new Trek Navigator that is fast becoming my favorite mode of travel. I live in a rural area and have access to a lot of nice roads and quite a few trails, so the bike fits me well.
I am also a motorcyclist and usually ride 15-20,000 miles a year, so I am hoping that bicycling will help me stay in the saddle longer.
This is really a good forum--thanks for all the input.

Hello telrad, I hope you have found the Clydesdales forum. It's meant specifically for those who are big folks, and if you want to lose weight and maintain the weight loss, the people over there are very supportive!

Good luck, and

Welcome to BF!
