Well, I am new to this road biking and this forum.
As I begin my journey to build up my strength and endurance, I want to make sure I am making the right decisions. While I have a ton of questions, the "search" feature will help me answer most.
There is one answer I cannot find. I just started cycling a 2 months ago. I am 35 and resonalble fit. I rode 33 miles, gentle elevation changes, with an avg speed of 16.3 so, I am not exactly at square one, but compared to the talent on this forum, I am a novice.
I ride every Sat am (30-40 miles) and once during the week (20 miles). My work schedule and kids prevent me from riding more during the week. But, I do have a gym at the office that has some high end equipment, stairmasters, bikes etc...
Finally, my question. Will I doing myself any good by getting on the excercise bike at work for 30-35 (gives me time to shower and get back to my desk in side of an hour) min a few times/week. I know from an excercise standpoint, there is not downside. But, my Saturday rides are obviously longer that 35 min and I do not want my body to get used to a false ceiling.
I am guessing that this is not the case, but some reassurance from the experts never hurts.
