Hi there, guys--
I posted a while back asking about which bike to get for my massive frame (6'8" 400, 34% bodyfat), and I seem to have come across my bike. It's a Sun EZ-tadpole SX that my dad gave to me (he got a new TerraTrike), and I love it so far. I just had it tuned at Calhoun Cycle, and everything seems to be going well. I just want to ask about workouts.
I'm in pretty good muscular shape, as I've just come off a 6 month round of powerlifting, but it's time to get in good cardio shape as well, and lose some pounds. I took the tad out over the thanksgiving holiday and did a casual 12 mile ride, and another more vigorous 15 mile ride. It felt pretty easy, and damn fun. With my size and my strength, how many miles do you think I could do, and how many days a week should I ride? How many calories am I burning with my size?
The ultimate goal is to lose 100 pounds, and do RAGBRAI next summer on the tad. Thoughts?
Oh, anyone want to ride around Calhoun/Harriet?
Thanks so much, guys!
