I don’t really do cycling. I cannot drive a car but have a full motorcycle license but no bike either.
I have a cheap mountain bike and recently joined the gym and now cycle to the Gym.
The stupid thing is I really do not enjoy riding my bike on the main roads, they are heaving with traffic and full of assholes. Yet I love using the bikes at the Gym. I need to lose 2 stone in weight and have done very little exercise in the last 8 years so it is tough going.
3 weeks ago I started and did a 15 minute stint and managed 3 miles, then did 1000m on the rower and another 3 miles on the bike in 15 minutes. Over the last 3 weeks I have now upped it to 4 miles in the 15 minutes and moved up to harder riding levels as well, 2500m on the rower and another 4 miles on the bike.
I can certainly see why riding a bike is enjoyable, I get my head down and away you go, music on and push. All I need now is to get the consistency going on distance. Some of the riders there seem, to really get som massive distance but it certainly is enjoyable without teh traffic or assholes.
