I am a newcomer to biking and BF. I am 6'1 and weigh 239. I got engaged over the summer and the wedding is May 30th and in Jamaica. This means I can't be fat! I of course want to get healthier but looking good on my wedding day is a big plus. I need some advice...
1) I have never road cycled and don't know anyone who has, I basically keep a quick cadence and ride until I think I should turn around and head home. Longest ride is 30 miles so far. What should I be doing?
2) If I only ride solo am I hurting my efforts (would a friend or group push me to lose more weight?)
3) I ride 4 times a week from 1-2 hours at a go. Is this acceptable or should I ramp it up.
Typical ride stats:
16.3 avg speed
1:49:00 or so
Any advice or knowledge appreciated! I
