A cycling recovery plan

Boozhoo! (ojibwe greeting) I use to ride bike all the time, just for pleasure. I became very sick 11 years ago and gain a tremendous amount of weight. I discovered I had a thyroid disease and am on a road to recover but what I really want is to get on the road with my bike! I am happy to have found this community as I feel that bike will be my recovery, repairing bike for youth in my community and visiting with others will is part of my wellness plan. thank you for having me

I understand what you're going through. I had a thyroid problem too and I couldn't bike for a year. It was tough and I'm glad you've got your spirit back!
