I bought a bike last year because I thought I would use it. I loved bike riding in my younger days, but I haven't owned a bike since my 20's. I did research and bought a second-hand touring bike with a high weight rating. It was awkward getting used to it, but I was able to stay upright! But. What has kept me from really using it is the mental stuff. I am overly concerned about what I look like (huge butt, overflowing on the little seat) and the fact that I'm so out of shape and go slow. Then there's the issue of traffic on the roads and people on the sidewalks. I'm too wobbly to feel safe with everyone else around. I think that if I can find somewhere more isolated where I don't have to worry about these things, then I might do it more often. But....motivation....getting off the couch....
