Hello from Belton, MO

Hey whats up dudes. I am a beginner cyclist and I now just have a cheap Wal-Mart bike to start out with. I'm just going to start cruising streets to build up endurance but my goal is to get serious about off road biking. Not familiar with terminology of biking yet, like through wooded trails and such.

A few months ago I was having problems with my blood pressure and I was obese. I weighed over 300 lbs and my doctor strongly advised me to get my health under control. Scared of my health, I just had my father-in-law pass away at a young age and my mom is having blood pressure issues and that blood pressure is a problem in my family, I took serious action and started to diet and work out. I have lost over 10 lbs in two months! I want to get serious about bicycling because I love riding a bike when I was a kid and it helps me burn calories and that means more weight loss.

Thanks for a good forum for advice and hope to become familiar with some of you!
