I started biking to work about 1.5 months ago. I use to just mountain bike once in a while. Now I have a great road bike and comutte to work about 32 to 38 miles round trip.
The problem is that so far I have only been able to manage 2 trips a week at best. It appears my knees are sore, my butt hurts as well. My commute time is about 1 hour there and 1:20 minutes back on average.
Is there anyway to improve my recovery from these bike rides. IT seems like if i ride on tuesday it takes me 3 days to recover for Friday.
I been doing about 60 to 80 miles a week. I would like to be in good enought shape to ride at least 4-5 five times week which equates to 190 to 240 miles a week. Is this a realistic expectation ?
