Arkansas Athena

Hi all, I've been lurking for a while, and guess I should finally introduce myself! I'm new to cycling (unless you count what I did as a kid), riding for fun and fitness. I've got a lot of weight to lose, knees were hurting from solely walking for exercise, so I bought a bike (Raleigh Venture) about a month ago. I'm slowly working up to longer rides. My first one was a painful 1.5 miles, today was a fabulous 5.5, and I'm hoping to be doing 20-30 mile rides (or more!) in a year or so.

I live in Northwest Arkansas - lots of beautiful places to ride here, I'm discovering! The hills sure are challenging, though. If there's anyone else in Fayetteville who rides kinda slow, at least on the uphills, and wants a buddy, contact me!

Hello Becky, I thought I recognised the name--everyone seems to be lurking in the Clydesdales Forum these days! Glad you came out to say hello. You've made some great progress there, and even though you don't think so right now, 20-30 miles will seem like a breeze by the end of the year. Trust me.

Check into the regional forum for the Southeast, there's at least a few members in Fayetteville who might join you.

Welcome to BF!
