New bike day and weight loss

So, today was NBD: Salsa Marrakesh 2019. So Comfortable! Really looking forward to putting on some miles!

Also, Iím down 55lbs since joining this forum. Biking is a big part of that.



New Marrakesh!

Congratulations! There's nothing like a new bike. I just picked mine up last weekend. Can't wait to take her out for another spin. Gotta build up the mileage.

Hope you were out there yesterday putting some miles on it. You're in my neck of the woods and it was a picture-perfect spring day. I did 22 hilly miles on my new Ruby.
