Hello, I usually ride 30 miles 4-5 times a week commuting to work, and usually will do a 25-50 mile ride (hilly) on the weekend. I like the idea of keeping some muscule on my upper body and usually do sit-ups and pushups 2 times per week during down time.
The only downside I find is that doing this seems to induce at least *some fatigue during a ride the next day.....depending upon how windy it is.
Anyone else have this issue? I haven't found an real way around it, but I sometimes think about just focusing on riding alone since I enjoy it the most.
