Hello from Albuquerque, New Mexico
. I took up bike riding about 3 years ago after I suffered a hip injury. I was unable to continue jogging or playing tennis. I have discovered that I enjoy bike riding better than the other two.
It has helped my medical situation as cycling does not impact on the joints like other sports do. I would be interested in hearing from other riders who have experienced similar benefits.
I have also discovered that Albuquerque has very good bicycle trails. You can ride nearly anywhere in the city on a bike trail or bike lane. In the three years I have been riding, the city has opened new trails or repaved old ones.
I haven't done any long rides yet. My best so far is 65 miles. I just enjoy a leasurely ride most of the time. usually for exercise and to get out of the house.
I look forward to hearing from you.
