    Hi,
    1) Cycling is an excellent aerobic exercise. You said cardio, but I suspect you meant aerobic.
    2) Ride as often as you like. I'd give the legs a day off after heavy lifting, but that's about it. Make sure you give the bod at least one day off a week.
    3) Riding should help tone things up, at least a little.
    4) If you are weight training, and riding, your muscles are already fit and toned. What you need to do is eat a good diet. That means lots of fruits and veggies, and not junk food. Strip away a little fat, and reveal what is already there.

    Yes, cycling will give you sexy legs and a nice butt, as well as making your heart stronger and healthier. Hell, I've got better legs than 75% of the girls I see haha.

    Have fun.

    Am I the only one not missing the word TEENAGE in her post? Isn't this how Law and Order SVU usually starts, some old guy asking a teenage girl for her picture over the internet?

    Some advice:

    Get a heart rate monitor.

    Do the 2x20 test to determine your max heart rate. Make sure to have someone with you so you don't hurt yourself.

    Use your max HR as a indicator while you ride your bike.

    The following excerpt is from this article:
    Triathlon Workout Plans
    Its geared towards triathletes not specifically for cyclists but the following should help you:

    Quote Originally Posted by Tri-eCoach.com
    Heart Rate Percentages and Training Effect
    Each heart rate range has a distinct effect for your training. Iíll describe what pulse range is appropriate for each type of workout for runs.

    Note: The ranges will be 5 to 8% lower for equivalent RPE for cycling.

    65% to 70% This is an effort level considered appropriate for very easy run training and recovery days after tough training or race efforts.

    70% to 75% This is the range for maximum aerobic training benefit, and moderate "base" training that is not especially stressful to the body. This range is also the best to develop your metabolismís fat burning capability for distance races like half to full Ironman distance. The majority of your training should be done in this range.

    75% to 80% This is mild tempo training that helps to build your muscular/skeletal foundation for the rigors of racing. This range is especially valuable during the early pre-season phase when you need to 'toughen-up' in preparation for higher intensity training and racing.

    85% This is considered fast tempo training. Itís not quite race pace (except for very long races) but it simulates race efforts without the need for as much recovery afterwards. This intensity should be performed as late pre-season training, and as a substitute for races when there are none available.

    85% to 95% This is the race effort range. During a PR 5k race effort, you may find yourself holding 95% for the second half of the race. For a fast 10k youíll probably be in the 90% to 95% range for your best effort. Also, when you do speedwork on the track you should expect to see a heart rate at or above 90% of max for much of the workout.
    Use those percentages as a guide to getting a good cardio work out. Naturally, if you are maintaining a fairly high HR while you ride (75% or so of your Max HR) you will be giving your legs a good exercise too!

    Stick around these forums and you will learn lots. I've only been here about 2 weeks and theres TONS of information to be had here.
