    Is there a medicated ointment for this..?

    I have an itch, and it hasn't gone away yet.

    If I don't ride my schedule I feel it, this itch in the back of my brain that craves the feeling of wind on my face. I want to walk into the house with my legs drained, my hands sore, covered in sweat and stink.

    So a question for our veteran riders...

    Does this feeling fade over time, stay the same, or get stronger? Or maybe I am just a bit crazy on the subject.

    With treatment, I.e. Riding, the sore hands will go away. ;-)

    It is a common issue to have, that itch your talking about. I believe its effects varies from person to person. You will have to wait and see how it affects you.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    I'm a new rider (as of my May 20th purchase)....
    When I brought my new bicycle home with a pair of stretch bike shorts, helmet, and gloves.... I jus' HADDA take it for a ride the following morning. But that wasn't enough, I wanted my butt to get used to the saddle ASAP! so I took the new bike out for another ride the following day. And the next day, and the next......

    I finally realized that the hunger, the desire, the 'need' to ride (for me) hadda be mellowed, I needed to slow down and ride every OTHER day, not daily. I have also made it a point to stop riding sooner than my strength or enthusiasm might allow.

    I try to keep it interesting, I try to leave myself wanting for MORE, I'm trying not to burn out so early in the game of my new-found hobby. I could ride every day, but I'm alternating instead; I could ride 20 miles, but I'm limiting myself to only 16 miles right now.

    Jus' trying to stay hungry for my next outing.....
