I am 46, 5'8" 260ish Clyde in St Paul, Mn. I have a number of friends who have taken up cycling over the past year and decided it was time to do something to live my life a little healthier.
For this endeavor I went with a Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat bike running 29inch street tires (which were included with the purchase.
This is hard. I've been out twice this past week not getting much further than 1.6 miles and about 20 minutes on a relatively flat route. By then my legs and lungs have just about had it.
I was planning on making this an every other day event to allow myself to recover even though my legs are not sore the following day. Not sure if should just suck it up and keep going every other day.
All I want to accomplish right now is to make it the 2 miles to the park where at some point I can ride their paths. My eventual goal is the commute to work which isn't all that far at a little over 6 miles, but it does include some more significant hills.
