I joined SP as a way to drop 20 pounds. I am pretty sure I can do that with my current workout schedule, and adding counting calories to be sure I am on a deficit for calories.
I have had my bike for about 3 years, but only seriously started riding this year. I discovered a group in my area while out riding in April/May of this year and have been riding hard since. I have discovered bike racing as well, did my first training race, a 'C' race on 8/22 and got 2nd, and I have my first official race this Sunday.
So my goal is fitness as well as performance, and the weight loss will allow me to be more competitive. 195 at 5'9" is pretty heavy and I know I can lose it.
I just gotta stay on the bike and watch what I eat.
'07 Cycling goal: 2066/3000 miles
