What you can achieve- Tony Peoples

Posted on by BAC_cms_adMin2

I was going back through the stories people have sent me, over the last couple of years, when I came across this one.  It was rather short in words, but the pictures say it all.  It’s almost a year and a half old but Tony, if you’re out there, way to go!

In january 2007 I weighed 400 Lbs,on may 16 I had weight loss surgery. In september I was down to 396 lbs, and the doctor wanted me to get more exercise. so my bike dealer sold me a sun ez-sport.I had never cycled before. I became addicted riding more and more.I am now in perfect health. no meds.I chose recumbants because Im 45 and needed something that wasn’t going to hurt me.The reason I wrote you is that I am down to around 215 lbs. and just bought a ti-aero WOW.I ride 30 to 40 miles every day when Im off work I work 14 days on and 14 days off. It has saved my life.I can average 20 mph easy.I love it.

  1. Fantastic! I can speak for of us who are lucky enough to know and ride with Tony regularly. Tony’s experience is inspiring. He is just so strong of a rider that not many of us can keep up. Almost every recumbent rider I know has some sort of special experience thanks to the biking style we love so much. Bravo.

  2. I know Tony personally. His story is amazing. He saw him recently and he still looks great. In fact, he is now well-known for his riding prowess, speed, and stamina on the bike. He actually got me interested in recumbents. Now. my Trek Madone feels awfully lonely in the garage while my Bacchetta Strada is chewing up pavement.

  3. I too am lucky to have ridden with Tony. The first time I rode with him, I had a 20 yard lead as we came up to a bridge. I dropped down the side bike path and when I did, I saw Tony kick it in as he stayed on the main bridge road to pass. I pumped hard thinking I’d hold the lead coming off the bridge. Wrong! I came off the side path flying but Tony was 10 yards ahead of me. He never stopped and lost me soon after. Great job Tony!
