After a year ish not riding piling on tons oof weight and starting getting my bike nicked etc I am just getting back into it and feel a little fitness returning.
Started doing 6-8 miles and a big ride was 10 miles, avoided going out if it was windy as it was to much effort but now riding 20 miles easily and comfortably, seen my pace go up etc. I road 30+ last weekend and ok it hurt a little but I put that down to dieting to not fuelled as well as I might have. Most is just out on canal paths and rads on a cx bike at the minute until my insurance is sorted but main thing is getting fitness sorted. Its probably no wonder I am getting quicker and feeling better having lost 2 stone in 3 months.
Just wondering how far typically everyone rides, is it for fun, fitness etc. Do you do anything else fitness wise.
Plan on starting at the gym and getting some core fitness and swimming but cycling mainly as its low impact, and I love it, especially now I am getting the beef off and feeling better.
