Bought a road bike today. It is simply beautiful and I have been drooling over it for a month. It was closeout sale and still there so I took the leap. I will get a full bike fit on tuesday and will definitely need some more instruction on this. Handling is so different than my trail bike, I was scared riding it. I am happy I took the time to get the right bike at a decent price as this investment in my health is significant. HEALTH is priceless. I see my Doctor in 2 weeks and hopefully I will stop the BP meds we halved last time I saw her. I know she will be happy with my progress. I am ecstatic that even though my exercise is way down over winter I continued to lose weight. I gained 25 lbs last winter and will never do that again. I am closer to my reward of a trip to Ireland for goal weight that I can start looking into the details of when is the best time, cost, and whatnot. I can't believe it is really gonna happen. I just gotta stay on plan.

    Great bike! I like the title of your blog. The correct number of bikes to own is N+1. As you know, "N" is the number of bikes you already have.

    Very exciting! I like to do touring and distance riding. You’re opening up a new world. It all starts with the 1st mile on your new bike. emoticon
