Take it slow or No Go
I ride my bike nearly every day, but not big distances. I'm borrowing my friends geared bike for club rides for the summer and today was my first one in a year. It was 45 miles, which I should be able to do fairly easy by the end of the summer.
I'm definitely feeling it, but I think I could go tomorrow. I'm thinking these are my choices:
1. Go for it. Use small gears and take it slow, but if you what to pick up your pace and be a better rider you'll need to start riding 5-6 days a week.
2. Take a day off. You just got back into riding longer distances and you should transition easy. Five-to-6 days a week is a great goal, but it shouldn't be your first week. If you really want to ride again you have Memorial day to do so.
