I have just started riding for the first time since I was little and I am enjoying it so far, but I have a question about riding everyday. I know it is best to just ride as much as you can at first, no matter how short it is, and that is what I have been trying to do. I have done two 7-8 mile rides and a commute to work that is about a 7 mile loop. I was going to get more rides in but of course it has to rain for a few days straight... Anyway, My real question is should I ride back to back even if I am sore?
I expected my legs to be a little sore, and they are but they are not too bad, but my arms are the worst. I am almost positive that is is due to by bike being a little small for me (it is an early 90's univega mtb) and to get the seat high enough it has put the bars a few inches below my seat. I know the best solution would be to get a bike that fits, which I plan to do hopefully in the spring once i get the money(I think I convinced myself to get a Surly LHT).
Sorry for the some what long post about nothing but I just don't want to hurt myself too much. Thanks.
