    Hello everyone,

    A recent (1 year) convert to road cycling, a forty four year old, overweight, recently ceased smoker here.

    I am trying to lose a bit weight and get a bit faster and have a bit more endurance, I generally do about 20 miles about 3 or 4 times a week, but am aiming at doing longer rides. The hills bloody kill me carrying the timber but I am getting a little bit stronger.

    I will be looking round the forums for the odd bit of advice and probably to buy and sell as well.

    Cheers, Paul.
