Cutting out the pop and sweets will help you drop weight plus be better for your heart. The bikes will give you exercise and help circulation. Best thing is you've made the choice to do something. Keep it up, you and the family will benifit in the long run

Default You are not alone !

I got to do the same thing , I already own the bikes and have done alot of cycling .Get an odometer on your bike ,then a couple water bottle holders for water bottles , get good cycling clothes ,etc . ,it's what you make of it and is a hobby of mine ,even road on the highway at times !

I own a cross ,hybred and touring bikes so getting anymore is a no-go as I need to ride !
