    20 miles a day 52 weeks a year...

    Hello, my name is carless I'm a cyclaholic (mmurmurrr, "Hello", mmmurmurr)
    I ride 20 miles a day yearly, exclusive of errands, but including commutes to work. Is this desireable for training? On days I'm a little slow I switch to a bike with gears. I'm not training for an event, I'm the original ****- I'm an addict. What are the drawbacks to my knees, should I get a HR monitor or just keep riding oblivous to any concern. Am I setting myself up for a long old age?
    I am open to suggestions, comments or things that bounce around in your head. (last time I said that I was soon learning "Time Warp" on stage).

    As long as you don't have specific goals such as losing weight or riding across to the North Pole you don't have to do anything different. Don't get caught up with the numbers game and what other people think. You have a good life.

    Just keep on doing what your doing. Unless you have got your heart going flat out and your worried about it there's no need for a heart rate monitor. Consuming traditional foods such as bone stocks, fresh vegetables and traditional animal fats such as butter will look after your bones. Stay away from man made fat's and soy and you should stay healthy. There, that's my heresy for today. See http://www.westonaprice.org if you want to find out more.

    I've kinda reached the point where I'll read what Anthony says and just do the opposite. Works pretty well

    Do what you want but don't complain later that no one told you when current dogma falls in a heap.

    I've started another thread to handle these sort of questions rather than highjacking the origional posters thread.
