    Possible Two Rides Tomorrow...Too Much???

    I am scheduled for a normal ride early tomorrow of about 17 miles and have a chance to MTB with colleagues after work. Probably no more than an hour for the p.m. ride but it is my first time actually riding trails. Is that too much for the day? Had a great long ride (for me, anyway) on Sunday of 57 miles, day off yesterday and today was an easy ride because of the cold this morning. Thursday is a regularly scheduled day off and back in the saddle on Friday.

    17 miles and some mtbing? No problems. I don't see that being too much at all. I usually do 40km on the trainer and 20-40km of commuting every day with no days off for 8 months now and I feel good. In fact I feel downright bad if I don't.

    Go for it! I went for about a 40 mile ride on Sunday with a group of guys that were heading home after to change and head out for a couple of hours of MTB riding.

    Dude, you got this. Nothing to worry about IMO.

    Thanks all. Got my morning ride in and at a nice clip, and I'm looking forward to this afternoon. I'll let you all know how it goes.

    I am curious why you would be concerned that two rides of moderate length in one day would be "too much"? Especially since you have just demonstrated that you can ride 57 miles in one sitting?
