Well tomorrow marks two weeks of riding. I lost another two pounds this week. I am down five pounds total now since I started riding. If you are keeping track, I am at 301 pounds, and I am after Jarod's job. Todays ride proved to be the most testy. My rear tires flatted. Luckily my local shop talked me into buying the extras. I wasn't sure how to fix the tire. I called them up on my cell phone and they were very nice to talk me through fixing it. It really wasn't that hard. Those quick release gadgets are a real joy. The speakers are a real joy as well. I puchased the inflatable speakers to get rid of the head phones. I mounted them to the rear rack. They sound great as I was going down the road. You should see the looks I get too. No one quite knows what to make out of them. They are amazed when I point out they are speakers. They sound great. I plan on a twenty mile ride tomorrow after taking my kids to the park.
