That is great . I did my first over 30 yesterday the last bit involved riding round the local estate about 6 times as I was determined not to go home having done less.

How long have you been riding for? That sounds like a great achievement.

The soreness does go after a while, it used to really hurt for me the day after a big ride, now I just get tired legs for a while afterwards.

Keep it up.

Well done. I thinkdoing your first 20 is the biggest milestone.After that its just pushing it a bit further until within a year you will be looking at a 100.

Just do some gentle rides for a few days to recover then see how the next one goes.

I bought a roadbike after about 6 months of riding but still get a lot of fun out of the hybrid as well riding on tracks etc that the roadie couldnt do ,

Excellent, well done. It does get easier and you'll notice your thighs getting firmer after a few weeks. Now that's nothing to complain about is it?
