Hello all

Just signed up. Have been lurking for a few days and just thought I would join in. I am male, 48 and a clydesdale. I am fixing to pull the trigger and buy a bike in the next week or so. It will be used for commuting to work(8 miles R.T.) and some weekend recreational riding. Looking to shed some pounds. I havnt owned a bike since 1967 or 68, my how things have changed. I test rode my first bike today (Giant Transcend) and it was a blast. I am going tomorrow and try a Trek 7100 and or a 7200, also a Kona Dew. Hopefully see you on the road soon.

Excellent! I never totally stopped riding, but until last year I didn't really embrace it as I could have. Group rides, climbing, some commuting, and an organized century later, I've lost twenty pounds, and feel great. When you start making a little progress, it becomes really inspiring. The more you do it, the more get into it, the better you feel, and the more you get into it. Eventually bikes are all you can care about, and it irritates everyone around you, you will lose friends, your family will turn their backs on you. But at least you can find fellow addicts and encouragement here. Welcome aboard.
