When I first got back in cycling I found myself overdoing things and my legs and knees were suffering for it. I was losing weight so I guess I was pushing too hard too early trying to lose weight more quickly. People in these forums suggested I learn to rest between rides and that is just what I did. For about three months I have been riding three days a week with a bike club for about 40-45 miles a ride. My legs are fine and my knees no longer bother me. But I am getting restless and have been riding my comfort bike all over town just to ride during the day.
Would it be better to increase my distance during the club rides or should I do some solo road bike rides on my off days? I donít think I am ready for the late afternoon fast road rides yet.
