Last Saturday was my first time on a bike in about 10 years. It was also my first time on a road bike since I was probably 9 or 10 years old (I'm 38 now).
I have got to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't wait for the next day's ride. I am planning on commuting to work 4 days a week on the bike, which is just over 9 miles each way.
I did my longest ride so far tonight. It was a 8 mile ride with 460' of climbing. I averaged 16.9 MPH. I was pretty excited with that result and am planning on doing the ride to work at least once next week, probably Wednesday.
I'm loving this sport!
