    first ride

    I did my first ride today. I did 10 miles at an average of 13.3mph. I'm pumped! (sore also)

    Cool beans! Great job as well, now take a hot soak and do a light ride tomorrow, no more than 3 miles at a slow and easy pace to work the lactic acid out of the muscles.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    My first solo ride was maybe about 4 miles and I think I was riding well over a year before I could even consider an average over 12.

    wow, very nice job. Agree with Tom, make sure to go for a short slow ride tomorrow, don't want to over do and completely stress the body out to quick

    Good effort mate.

    Now, if I flick through my training diary ... oh okay, scroll the excel spreadsheet back to the top, I note that my first ride (after being off the bike for a few years) was a whole 3.2km and the note was 'totally stuffed '

    Be prepared for signs of overdoing it - it's very easy, but with that start, you'll do well

    Hey, I just got done with a "9.2"mile averaging 14.8 mph and feel great. Its a hard feat to do in Houston area due to traffic, lack of bike lanes and sidewalks, 94 degrees, 58% humidity. But I did it, and that all that matters. I think I'll go to a park this weekend and do a 10 mile ride.





    Funny pic I took, Irony is the "No Smoking" sign and the appearence of the column is attatched to.
