So my primary goal in riding in weightloss and I found a loop that is exactly 2.5 miles, with a bit of hills and what not. This helps me track how far I've approximatly gone. Iv'e made it 10 miles only once but working on it.
I find I go further/harder if I have somewhere to go so this is almost perfect.
ALMOST becuase its residential and I drive by the same houses up to 4 times in an hour with flashy blinky lights so I dont get hit with a car.... Little selfconcious about this.
So like I said - do you take the same comfortable paths to work out (obviously not explore)?
