Actually, depending on how new you are to cycling this time, I may disagree with manual overide. If you are brand new, just back in the saddle, limiting your first few weeks of riding to 3 to 4 rides/week of an hour or less will ease the adjustment your body needs to take you to the next level. Slowly increase your rides to 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. A slower process for sure but I have found that people who follow this method tend to enjoy the activity longer. The trick is the regularity, not the time or distance when you are a newbie. Once you have your legs, lungs and butt acclimated, go for it. Ride whenever possible. But be sure to give yourself some recovery time, no matter what level you are at.
