I had no idea where to post this, i did not see a newb intro thread, but there are alot of sub forums in this place, so if i missed it, i apologize.
Name is kerry, i'm 47. And live/work in Bastrop. I got tired of my sedentary life style of sitting behind a desk all day wasting away, so a few months ago i started getting off my ass and reintroducing myself to the outdoors by hiking, etc.
A couple weeks ago after some research i bought me a GT Aggressor 1 so i would have another avenue of exercise. It a beginner bike with the lower quality components, but i couldn't spend a fortune up front and if all goes well and i stick with this, i will just do the same thing i do with my jeep and replace broken parts with better parts.
I have primarily been riding after work either on my cycleops (avg. 10 miles per session) or around the neighborhood (avg. around 7-8 miles ) to get my bike legs, get into shape, and build up some endurance.
I went out to Tahitian Village here in town today and humbled myself a bit hitting the trails and only getting in about 3 miles. The hills and loose rock, kicked my ass, but i plan on riding out there alot more to build up some endurance so i can hit some of the better trails. Hope to see yall soon.
