So I've been bodybuilding for three years now. The first year I spent dropping from 230 to 164. I spent a year at a fairly steady weight, and now I'm bulked up to 180 lbs at 5 foot 7. I've always wanted to take up cycling and I've been looking into it a lot more lately.
I love the thought of riding centuries and logging 150 miles a week. But I am DREADING the thought of losing the muscle I've worked so hard to gain.
I'm just looking for insight and advice into how I would best train. If I eat and lift like I'm still bulking but incorporate the cycling will the combination of so much cardio and the weight training be detrimental? I know how to time my cardio/diet to maximize fat loss, but I have no idea how to work around cycling for hours at a time.
I'm just looking for any advice or insight I can get. Thanks
