This is a well intended. respectful response to all those that have excuses for why they don't ride. Give 'em up and get pedaling.
You can do it!
You just have to start.
You know you'll never forgive yourself if you don't.
You'll feel great - The pain-in-the-butt goes away quickly. You can start with one of those huge saddles but it won't be long until you ditch it in favor of a narrow saddle.
This has to be the best exercise, other than walking, that there is. There are many trails nearly everywhere.
Get your family and friends off their butts too. You don't need them, and I assure you that they will envy you and start to ride when they see how happy you are.
I am 59 years old and now have a "real" age of 50. This is largely thanks to my bike.
