Time for a ride report. I have been riding for exactly 3 weeks and 1 day now. I have to say this sport is certaintly addictive. I started doing around 10 to 14 miles a day in separate trips. Now I am up to 25 miles in 1 uninterrupted ride with a few hydrating stops that last a minute or so. It is so much fun and I can really tell my phisycal condition has improved tons. My legs are a lot stronger and it doesnt feel like I am dying durring rides unlike when I rode at the beginning. I also started taking a fat burner called OxyElite Pro and drinking lean protein shakes after the ride.
I do have one concern. Maybe this is a premature question but, how long does it take to start losing weight? I feel like I am gaining weight even though I am eating pretty healthy, at least in comparison to what I used to eat. I am also riding an average of 10 to 15 miles a day at a decent pace of 15 miles per hour and 700ft of climb. By now I am into 150 +/- miles and 6,700 ft. of climb. I will keep pushing harder and eating even healthier. My goal is 100 miles and 25 pounds within the next year!
