Yesterday morning I casully mentioned that I’ve been thinking about buying a couple of bikes so Lisa and I could start taking rides around the neighborhood and nearby parks. We live in a very large neghborhood, and there are also miles and miles of nice paved bike trails just around the corner from us, so there’s lots to explore. Within an hour of making my post, two things quickly became very apparent: There are a lot of very knowleagble bikers on JSF, and I know absolutely nothing about bikes! Seriously, I want to thank everyone who took the time to email, PM and post. The information you all provided was invaluable to me, but it also made me realize that I have a lot to learn. I want to stress that I’m not looking to do any hardcore mountain biking (at least not yet!); Lisa and I just want to get outside and do something fun and active together, and the bike idea appeals to both of us. With my job situation very tenuous, I can’t justify spending a lot of money right now, so I’m going to take the excellent advice given to me by so many of you and keep my eyes on Craigslist. Thanks again!

The first day of the month is always one of the busiest for me, so I need to get back at it (I started working at 5:45 this morning and I still feel behind). Be sure to check out the October 2009 Transformation Spotlight! Forum member epro (Phil) has done an incredible job with his transformation!
