I've been riding for fun since I was really young. Now that I'm out of college, I want to get off my lazy ass and save some money. I've bought the book "Effective Cycling". Building up my pile of gear and exercising before I hit the road. I'm currently doing exercises for my abs and gluts; running, and doing some push-ups.
I'm looking for a psychological edge on the road. Any realworld experience is appreciated.
