i love it, fresh air in the lungs, heart pumping, legs wobbly when i get off lol, seriously though, i have changed my way of eating, i eat all the carbs, protien, etc and i do feel loads better, not only on the inside but on the outside to, i feel cleaner for some stupid reason!!!
i really feel like all the goodness from proper eating is pumping right through me.
LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I started a little slower than that, and in a few months I am now averaging 14-15 MPH on my MTB. I haven't ridden my commute on my road bike yet, I like the workout of hauling that chunk of steel. I have a 6 mile ride with a couple of decent hills. I wish I had improved as fast as you did, I'd be flying by now. Congrats, and keep going.
