    So.... I used to be a runner, but the doc told me to stop if I couldn't control my heart rate. So, lady year I purchased a road bike and I'm absolutely loving it!

    2 weeks ago I bought my wife a Specialized "roll " and our longest ride together was 7 miles and she felt great. I could never get her to run with me, but with her new bike she loves going out.

    I can click off 20 miles, but mostly because I have a good bike. It's comfortable and fits me well. It's also a Specialized.

    Hi,

    I run and bike, my bike is a trek. I run between 3-7 miles, and ride my bike between 15-30 depending on time.

    Do you go off trail or city trail?

    Nice! I wish I could trust myself running, but I enjoy it too much and can't seem to keep my heart rate below what the doc wants lol.

    Instead, I walk about 45 Minutes each day at lunch and bike 3 times a week.

    I have a road bike, so I try and avoid dirt when I can lol. My wife's Roll does really well on the dirt. We rode just under 4 miles with the grandkid last night and most of that was gravel road. I cringe every time a rock gets spat out the side of the tire!

    Haha I am laughing about your gravel comment.
    It sounds like you get a lot of exercise.
    We have off road bike traios, with ramps and narrow road ways that are about 5 or so ft off the ground. I guess you wouldn't like those if gravel makes you cringe. lol

    Mostly I ride in the city on trails because I have to talk someone jnto driving me to the other.

    I prefer jogging and will miss it if I don't go for a couple of days.

    Ha, have you ever heard a rock get spat out of a skinny tire that's inflated to 80 psi? Lol, I wouldn't want to get hit by one! They really zing!

    I'd like to get a nice trail bike, but I'm afraid it would put me in the same situation as running. I'd get too excited and my heart rate would go too high.

    I have an aneurysm so the doc doesn't want my heart rate above 155.... and I don't feel like dying yet Lol! I do miss running. I've put on 10 lbs since I stopped.
