Have no idea really where to start. I'm 45 years old and 340 lbs. Would like to start biking for exersice. I live in a rural area, but would probably be mostly riding on pavement. I would like to start with spending under $400. if that is possible and work my way up. Not even sure if there is a bike that would hold my weight.
I have checked places like ebay but I don't think I would like to start that way.
Is there a type of bike that is in between a road and mountain bike. If you can be specific...very specific.
I have had some medical issues that have caused me to gain some weight, but nothing that would prevent me now from riding a bike. I'll start out slow...but I just want to start. Thank you so much in advance....Kevin

What he said...

I believe that if you get yourself on a good ride, you'll discove the inner kid and start to really enjoy the riding. Weight will go down at what ever rate, but down's better than up; medical issues may improve with repeated excercise. Nothing to lose but weight and nothing to gain but better health. And BTW, I didn't start till 43, now I'm 59 and still love to ride.

The Clyde forum will be your best resource.

Good luck, keep us posted. Jim
