Welcome to the Team!

I'm jealous of your winter riding...! What a blast to do a tandem with your son!

Looking forward to hearing all about your training and of course the big ride in April!

Feel free to post away any thoughts, questions, etc. We're all here to help each other reach our goals...cycling or otherwise! :-)

Hi, My name is Lynnette. I live in Texas - Yeehaw! I am doing the Houston MS 150 with my 11 year old son in April. He has to ride a tandem bike so I have to train too! Hopefully this will help me get rid of the last 15 pounds. I read some really great advice. My son and I did 4.63 miles in 33 minutes and we will work up to getting in a 1 hour ride. That is where we are right now.

I can do all things in Christ, who strengthens me!

Wonderful to have you joining our SparkTeam!

Looks like we've traveled some similar paths...and even both ride Specialized! :-)

I'm sure you're going to have a BLAST on your upcoming rides! I just nailed a century down in NYC this past weekend. LOVE my life on two-wheels!

Congratulations on your 170lb weight loss. That's really awesome! Cycling is a great way to mix up your workouts and get that calorie burn. Good luck on your rides.

Welcome to the team. I love my bike and ride every chance I get. DH and I usually ride a tandem (road and mountain), but we do each have singles also (road and mountain). Our garage looks like a bike shop most days.

Keep up your riding and try to increase your distance every couple of days, you will make it.

Hey Team! I am new to your team and relatively new to cycling (couple months). I have been a member of SparkPeople for several years, and recently introduced Cycling into my daily workout routine and have really come to enjoy it! I wanted to add something else to the mix rather than the gym, trainer, and other activities I have to continue my weight loss and healthy life routine! I have lost right just over 170 pounds in the past 1.5 years, and am hoping cycling will help me get off another 30! I recently picked up a new Specialized CrossTrail Elite and ride it every day (weather permitting). I have added some accessories like clip-in pedals and shoes (what a world of difference they make) and a few other minor items. I try to ride at 10+ miles every week day and at least 15-20 on the weekends with a day off here or there to rest. I find it a quick and easy way to get my cardio in and burn some calories!!! I am trying to prepare for 2 upcoming charity rides, a 40 mile, and a 60 mile one in October. Hopefully I will be ready!
