If I were to tell people that I used to be overweight, they’d never believe me. But it’s true. Several years ago, I was a different person. Like many others, I’ve tried it all—dieting, supplements and all sorts of crazy workout programs. Nothing worked.
I was nearing giving up, until one day, I lost a bet to a friend. Long story short, my forfeit was to ride her bike for a couple of laps around the block. Sure, I could barely catch my breath, but it triggered something in me.
Since that day, I made a conscious effort to turn cycling into a habit. Soon, I became a serious enthusiast, learned about the sport and its health benefits. I even entered numerous sportives, century rides and the odd time trial. The pounds melted off, and I felt like a new person.
This is a passion that I couldn’t contain and simply had to share with the world. The thought of em-pedal-powering others to hop on this journey with me is a thing of beauty and excitement.
And so, Pedal Lovers was born!
