... that makes it so popular? I bought my first proper road bike last week, a tarmac, it's lovely and rides beautifully. However, I took it out for an hour today and all I could do the whole time was look longingly at the hills and wish I was on them.
I was abused by car drivers, bent over in a not massively comfortable position, my thumbs went numb, my feet went numb, I didn't even go that quick, and the ride was harsh and not particularly pleasant on the roads around here.
So what am I missing? The company, perhaps? I just found myself more and more wanting to get home and take out the mountain bike.
did I do something wrong?
