    Riding with a Neighbor

    One of my neighbors down the street goes to the same mountain bike trail that I do. It's only 1/2 mile from us. Anyway, I go riding a lot by myself and usually have no problems and can get through the entire thing without stopping. Here is my delimma. He has never been on a bike before and is just getting started. When we ride together, I seem to get tired a long with him. He has to stop quite a few times and walk up a few of the hills. Is this normal for me to get tired really fast when riding with him.

    For instance, yesterday, I rode one time around and then caught up with him and, at that point, I got tired and out of breath right a long with him.
