Yesterday I went out and rode for the second time. I went just under 6 miles in a little under a half hour. The ride before that was maybe a full week earlier I went three and a half miles in about 14 minutes.
I need to get to the point where I can easily ride ~ 10 miles in ~ 30 minutes. Regardless of whether or not it's uphill into a 20mph wind or not if I want to commute to and from work on my bike and still be able to pick my daughter up from daycare before they close and start charging me an arm and a leg for "overtime".
I have a Cycleops trainer in the living room I'm not opposed to riding since I can't go out and ride while my wife is at work. (11 month olds shouldn't be left home alone.).....
So, as a new rider, what should I adopt as a plan to get into shape for at least 10 miles at 20mph, Followed by a goal of wanting to ride with the local bike shop on Saturday and Sunday morning rides (~ 18mph for 2 hours).
Give me some mile per day goals for the cycle ops, and some cadence or speed recommendations, or both.
