First time rider here,
Bought a Scott from Alex's Bike Shop in Davie, Florida ( awesome gents )
Been on 3 rides so far only 25 miles total so far but planning on increasing that number shortly.
I wanted to join a sport me and my wife could do together, but also challenge me physically.
First experience, this sport is a lot harder then i thought it would be. Assumed I'd easily max high 30's straight off the bat. I couldn't top 29.6 max speed and average is about 16-17 over 7mile rides. Basically yeah i feel challenged, yet super excited to see how far I can advance each week in physically.
I know this might be a newb thing to say but i feel fairly confident that ill average above 20 some day.
Hope to ride with a few of you eventually Cheers,
