Hey all, I just joined the group a couple days ago and have been devouring all the past threads so far. I was wondering about cycling for weight loss as opposed to training for an event or for increasing VO2 max or anything like that. I've been reading that for weight loss, a long, ambling, meandering pace is better than a shorter nose-to-the-handlebars sprint till you die. What is your experience with this? I tend to be a "some is good, more is better, too much is just right" guy when it comes to exercise. As a result, I'm relatively fit for a guy who needs to lose almost 100 pounds. If I don't have a good, conscientous reason to hold back, I'll probably end up going balls-to-the-wall as long as my legs can handle it.
