Today's ride

Here's the bike. I haven't given it a name yet, but I sure am enjoying riding it. Today's ride was slightly over 21 miles. This week I added the rear rack so I can carry stuff when I get ready to take some longer trips, or if I want to ride to the grocery store and pick something up. Right now it's mainly for convenience.
Here's today's ride:

I'm hoping next week I can get back to the gym a couple of days a week for a little racquetball. Now that the weather is changing, cooler weather might keep me off the streets.

New sport for me

I've had to stop playing racquetball - sadly...I love the game and competition - but I have taken up bike riding to keep my weight down. besides that, I love riding. The only thing that would make it better is if I had 2 or 3 others to ride with every day.
I hope all this road time can help me lose the 40 lbs. I need to shed... I startes about 8 weeks ago, riding 8 miles, then 10, then 12. This week I started with a 15 miler on a new bike! I'll post pics of my bike in another post. Here was my ride today:
