Newbie From Florida

I'm 47 years old 6'3" and 315 lbs I was raised on a farm and never even knew how to ride a bike until I was like 15 and in the las two weeks I have rode a bike more than I have in my whole life put together. The other night I was watching a show and it had this guy that was 368 lbs train and complete a triathlon and I thought to myself if he can do it then dammit so can I so my mission begins. in august I'm signed up to complete my first Tri that consist of Swim 1/4 Mile Bike 6 Miles on the beach and Run a 5K I've done quite a few 5Ks so I'm OK there so it's the swimming and Biking that I needed to start working on. I bought a cheap Beach cruiser for $165.00 and thought why would you spend more. after 1 week I'm up to 6 1/2 mile a night on the bike and I love it I'm consumed with it who would of ever thought. I'm already going to bike stores looking for my next bike LOL . I'm Kind of pissed that I have been missing all this fun
