I'm determined to begin using this fitness blog as a way to pass along fitness tidbits of interest to clients and fitness enthusiasts. To kick things off, here is an extended version of my interview with Dorothy Bauman of Trailside Bicycles. The original interview appears in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, a publication of the Springfield Republican, where I write the monthly fitness column.

1. When I pass cyclists on the road, it seems like they have a lot of fancy clothes and gear in addition to their shiny special bikes. Does it cost a ton of money to get started?
All you need to get started is ANY bike in good working order, the desire (you just might feel like a kid again), and a helmet (hey, my head's worth 35 bucks). Like many self-propelled activities, you can start for cheap or do it up. The more you ride, the more I would suggest cycling-specific shorts - sleek spandex or casual "baggies". That's your top & bottom covered.
