It's not the bike weighing you down

I was talking to a local trainer-friend today 
in my local coffee shop.
He was talking about a road cyclist client he trains 
who spends hundreds if not thousands of pounds 
on the most expensive carbon fibre parts for his bike.
He has the best of everything.

The most expensive components. 

The lightest parts.
And the most 'aero' gear.
But...he's 3 stone overweight.
​​​​​​​You can spend all the money in the world on getting
the most expensive bike and the lightest parts, but 
​​​​​​​it doesn't matter if your bike is 6kg
lighter if YOU are 20kg overweight.
​​​​​​​The biggest thing holding you back won't be the bike.
The biggest thing holding you back is YOU.
Lose the weight and you'll find your 
fitness SOARS and you can fly up the 
hills that you used to have to push.
