Feeling similar pressures with M-i-L needing placement as well.

Well into Peak for my age. But this exercise I enjoy while mostly I resent 'wasting' the time on exercise. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Congratulations! Depending on your bike, sometimes the front wheel is pretty easy-peasy to take off and if makes it possible to load up into your car.

But what the heck, I'm betting you enjoyed riding your new wheels on that 7 miles home! :-)

The weather in Minnesota has been so erratic that cycking is a maybe proposition on a daily basis.We have days in the 60s and 70s with the next three to four days in the low 40s with internittant rain and even snow showers.Tumultuous April so far.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

The season for cycling is under way!

Our bike club celebrates Earth Day belatedly tomorrow by cleaning up a stretch of road we have claimed from the DOT and bagging all the debris for pick up.

Afterward we hop on our bikes for a ride and the weather is looking like an AWESOME mid-60's and sunny day! Woo hoo!

It’s always fun to vary ones route and see th sights. Amazing what we notice when we’re on 2 wheels that we miss when we’re entombed in our cars.

I love the sense of self sufficiency cycling affords.

Thank you Don. Glad to know someone is checking discussion threads for this Team.

my city, Springfield, MO, has on street bike routes that are well marked. The map, unfortunately
prints too small to read. But on computer I have taken the fun time to plan how to get to work from my apartment and several other trips.

Very cool to hear of your decision!

I suggest checking in with a local bike shop to help you with your decision to buy your first bike.

Before going to the shop I suggest you reflect on what your plans are for riding: light local rides? Joining a bike club? Racing? Pavement? Dirt/mountain biking? Longer distance touring and camping? Your LBS (local bike shop) can guide you and offer helpful suggestions.

Starting with itty-bitty rides as I've let myself slide during this COVID winter. At least the pounds have been held at bay.

Time to tune up our velocipedes and and get the wheels rotating. Here in Minnesota the snow is gone (for now) and the weather is ride able so no reason not to ride.. A bike length is adequate social distancing so for now no peletons.
