just getting started
hi all! i am a longtime distance runner and have had a few injuries as of late and am hoping to get "into" cycling. I just bought a Specialized Allez Sport and went for my first ride (loved the rhythm)! I have flirted with road bikes before, but have always been to greedy with my running time. Any ideas as to the best way to get into the sport? I am hoping to find suggestions as to how long to ride, at what pace, what cad, how often. I dont intend on becoming a racer, but would like to find a group of people who enjoy pushing themselves. After hurting myself running I want to make sure I start out right cycling. Any/all input is welcomed. Thx.
