New guy saying hello.

Ernie58 from Maryland here. I started 18 months ago as a 55 year old with pounds to lose. I'm down about 30 but my knees need a break and the winter months are tough on jogging with the colder weather and darkness in the evenings. I just bought a used Trek and a new fluid trainer to help with my fitness goals. When I can get outside, its like being a kid again to be on two wheels.

I look forward to reading the forums, ernie58

Welcome Ernie. I share your enjoyment about riding outdoors. Lucky me being in Louisiana where I can ride quite often in the winter months.
You will enjoy the forum.
