    Hi from Johannesburg RSA

    Hi, I'm 53 and have just taken up cycling (6 months)after double bypass. Riding has made a huge difference and I can't wait for weekends to get out on the road. Battling with the hills but after 35 years smoking expect to struggle any tips to get the lungs working harder would be appreciated.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and 2011 Felt Z4. :-)

    Why wait for the weekends? Have you considered bike commuting to work and for errands?
