Oregon road cyclist on deck

Just popping in to say hi to y'all from Bend, Oregon. I'm more or less a fair weather bicyclist, and I get to drive my work vehicle home, so I don't have to pay for my own gas to get to the office, which is only about 8 minutes away by car. However I do enjoy casual road riding and this year I would like to intensify my riding so that I can do at least a half-century by end of summer/early fall. I'm a bit on the heavy side for my size, so I'm working on a fitness program to build lean muscle mass and lose flab. My overall goal is to go from 5'9", 212lbs, 19% bodyfat, size 38-40 waist, down to 190lbs, 15% bodyfat, size 33 waist by the end of summer or early fall. I've begun eating better (NO MORE FAST FOOD) and have joined a gym and am just starting to get an idea of where I am, weight training-wise.

Wish me luck!

Hi Road_Rider, check out the Clydesdale/Athenas forum--it's a forum for the bigger cyclist. A lot of good information there about good rides for clydes, and a great place for motivation! Also, come on by the Pacific Northwest regional subforum and say hi to us locals (I'm in Kent, Washington).

Welcome to BF!
