Tell me about it, I live north of you in Vermont and an so sick of snow! I cannot wait for the melt. In fact I will be heading south for about two weeks very soon (yes my bike will be coming with) and will be riding in Florida and N. Carolina, with any luck. Good to have you here.

Hey great to have you joining our team of CyclePaths! :-)

That snow can't melt fast enough for me too! Nothing like toting extra pounds around on our bikes to motivate us toward better food choices. Although I'm a long term Sparker I've only recently accepted and celebrated the absolutely essential need for tracking food to whack down those pounds.

Looking forward to hearing about your two-wheeled travels!

I'm sure your bike has missed you, too. It was finally warm enough on an off day that I got to ride today! I have missed it.


One Day at a Time:
1) walk/ride 30 minutes
2) organize something in my home
3) fruit or veggie with each meal
4) sew 1 bobbin full
5) make someone smile

New pads, new tires and perhaps a new chain, and hopefully you will be good to go.

Welcome back to riding.

hello everyone
my name is Manny and i have been a long time rider but after getting a desk job (12yrs ago) and sitting behind a desk and working on computers all day long, the weight creeped up on me (currently 280lbs). i tried getting back on the saddle before, about 5yrs ago and was doing about a 10 mile run daily but working over time started taking up most of my time throughout the day (12-15hr shifts) that it was getting more and more difficult to continue to ride. i live in a area that is very close to a park and the ocean for long rides and lately i have been eyeing my bike that has been collecting dust. i'm waiting for the weather to get a little better to start riding again.

so for now i'm going to do a little maintenance on the mtb and i'm planning on getting some hookworm tires today. hope to be hitting the road soon since it looks like all this snow is slowly melting.
