i got back into cycling by riding the 4.5miles each way to my new place of work last year. if you ride at a pace that leaves you slightly out of breath and makes you sweat you'll soon build up a reasonable level of fitness.jpendel said:I am just starting with cycling and want to get fit an lose some weight.
I only have a basic bike and I ride to work which is only a few miles away.
How many miles should I be riding to get fit.
Made me smile that - as a seasoned cyclist, I still ride eye balls out on a commute, even when I think I'm tailing it off as I reach the office, sweat is pouring off me like niagra falls.....alecstilleyedye said:if you ride at a pace that leaves you slightly out of breath and makes you sweat you'll soon build up a reasonable level of fitness.
