well, know you have lots fo these topics but i joined a bike riding group last night and did 20 miles without stopping,may not seem like much to many but was a big achievment. never done that amount before espeically all the hills they went up. hwoever my lesg are so so sore, muscles seriously aching please tell me it gets easier. however i have also decided to get a road bike!!! my hybrid just isnt cutting the mark anymore.
