    Smile New Rider Here!

    Hello all, I am another new rider, I started cycling almost 3 months ago, originally for weight loss, now, because I LOVE riding my bike! I got myself a Trek 7.2 and it is absolutely my pride and joy I first started riding 6 miles every other day for the first several weeks and honestly thought my heart would explode and my legs would fall off, I was that out of shape now I go about 20 miles 5 days a week, or more if time and the weather allows. I actually finally got a pair of cycling shorts and a jersey today too, I figure since I have been doing this for 3 months, maybe it is about time to make my ride a just a bit more comfortable Oh yes and I am 50 years old and have also lost 27 pounds since I started in April along with being on Weight Watchers, so that is a great bonus to loving being on my bicycle!

    That is awesome! Great job on building up your mileage and the weight loss. It's great to find some kind of exercise that you love doing, and comfortable bike shorts will help you stay in the saddle longer. Welcome to TE!

    Good job! I also lost about that amount of weight with weightwatchers and cycling but have had more difficulty maintaining it and balancing riding and eating so about 10 lbs came back But you're doing great! Enjoy it
