I'm 250 lbs and recently bought a bike Trek 3900 not only to lose weight but also because I enjoy riding. I started on gear 2 and now have moved to gear 6 while keeping the front gear to 3. Now here are a few questions:
1) How important is it to warm up before riding? Any exercise suggestions?
2) I ride everyday at 4:45 to 6 in the morning as it is the only time in kuwait when it's not like a furnace during the summer. Is this good? Or should I try biking in the evenings?
3) Should I ride fast on a low gear (2 or 3) or should I increase resistance for losing weight?
I work a lot everyday and usually end up beat by the end of the day. Please offer any tips/suggestions on how to efficiently utilize my biking time in losing weight. Thanks all
