Hey guys. My brother and I just purchased 2 road bikes to lose some weight with. We are both roughly 80lbs overweight. We are new to road biking and would like some advice.
We are obviously very excited about our bikes and would love to ride all the time but would like to do this the right way to see the most positive results.
1. How many days a week can we ride? Is 5 overdoing it? Is more better? As much as we can handle or is possible?
2. How long should we be riding? Can you get a good workout in 1 hour? 2 hours? all day?
3. How far is a good starting point? 2 miles? 5 miles? 10 miles? as far as possible?
4. Also how should we ride? A couple of days very hard with some relaxing?
Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
