Get on your fixed gear bicycle and ride!

I still feel that varable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear! --Henri Desgrange, L'Équipe article of 1902

Less Dave Part II

Well, since March 17th I have lost something much more than just some weight....I was on the scale the other day and I am down to 240lbs!! I have lost 23.5 lbs as of yesterday....and I have not done some crash starvation thing....I just cut out soda, and eating out all the time, I make my own meals for the most part, started eating alot more fruit, drinking some green tea, etc.... I eat 6 times a day now so I always feel full....I can't imagine how the weight will fly off once I start commuting and doing an ocassional bike ride of some distance! I actually felt sick the other day when one of the kids asked me if I wanted a cupcake...the thought of eating that, yuck......I felt bad though because it was the kids birthday....I literally had my pants fall off my ass while walking to church this afternoon....and I just bought those pants, now I have to get smaller
I"m figuring I'll be down to 210ish by the end of May! ...LEAN AND MEAN baby!..........and, depending on how things go, and I'm going out on a limb here, just "talking".....before I continue,I am now offically a student at Minnesota State University Moorhead and I'm taking a summer school course that I need to teach in MN, oh yeah, I should be getting my MN teaching license this summer also, and I am being inspired by the endurance king, DAVE SIMMONS....I will ride my bicycle to school......and since the class starts at 9am on Sat. June 10th I will have to get an early start! a thought.......simmons, you gonna train me????
