I am a new rider and enjoying my neighborhood early morning adventures. I have lots of friends who ride and I finally had to get going and hopefully join them soon. Some of them ride 50 miles and perhaps someday, that is my tentative goal, I will join them. For now, I am enjoying riding at my pace and will gradually increase mph and distance as I need to listen to my body because of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I am finding that riding is much more pleasurable than exercising in a gym, but am also aware that at some point I might need to visit there to build on muscle strength.
I hope to make some friends here on the forum. Any advice for newbies is most welcome.
