“when a man wearing skintight pants is behaving more sensibly than you…”

Here in Portland, Maine there are plenty of people still using derailleurs, but very few people wear helmets. The only consistently helmeted group are the road bikers/spandex pod people; when a man wearing skintight pants is behaving more sensibly than you perhaps it’s time for some self-reflection.

Cycling/diet update, two months in

A short update to last month’s post: I barely squeaked into first place in the monthly cycling challenge with just 266 miles ridden, and I’ve lost another three pounds. Not too bad for taking a week off being sick and having some pretty horrible weather.

I did end up buying a new bike and I’m hoping to start putting down 100 miles a week and continue the weight loss as the weather finally starts getting warmer and dryer in April. In terms of total weight loss, I’m down about 10lbs since I started in mid-January and I’ve got another 25 to go, which I’m hoping to hit by the end of summer.
