Welcome! The wonderful thing about the bike is that it's pretty forgiving. I was a regular bike commuter at 210 pounds. Going up hills was rough, but that extra sixty pounds of fuel sure made the downhills fun!

I'm happy when I average 14 mph now - you're amazing!

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

You will be so glad you got back to it; and this is such a great time of year to ride!

That 100 pounds will be gone before you know it.

Would your wife consider riding with you? Making it a family event would be even more fun, more reinforcing.

Happy Trails!

Hi all, I took my road bike out today for the first time in a very long time. I've ridden my whole life and have many, many centuries and club rides behind me. However, I just stopped one day and now three years later I'm over 100lbs more than I was when riding my bike on a regular basis. I took my mountain bike out a few times for some short jaunts last week and decided that my butt should be able to stand up to an hour in the saddle. I did pretty well for a fat guy, doing just over 14 miles for my hour ride. Not setting any speed records but OK nonetheless.

I'm gonna take up some challenges for riding and try to establish some regular weekly rides to help she'd this weight.
