I find that I don't lose much of any weight riding, or at least I haven't to this point. I'd like to peel off about twenty to thirty pounds over the year, and am thinking of starting out with a new attempt at a running regimen this "off-season" to get myself a bit more trimmed down.
Any advice on the kind of techniques specifically aimed towards improving cycling fitness and/or losing weight as primary goal of this, while hopefully not stripping muscle needed for riding once the summer rolls around?
It also comes down to the fact that I have an easier time psychologically getting kitted out to go for a half-hour run than I do going for a ride in the dark and cold that is more the norm out east here these days.
Any advice is much appreciated...
