It's going to take some time for your muscles to adapt. You use different muscles on the bike. Some are the same, so you have an advantage, but it is going to take some time. The good news is that it is harder to get overuse injuries on the bike, and you can go longer. Your cardio will help you make huge gains after a little riding. I suggest you make sure your bike is somewhat fitted to you, if at least make sure that when your foot is at the bottom of the pedal stroke and your foot is level, adjust the seat height so that your knee is around a 10 degree angle from being dead straight.

Thanks for the help.
