its probably muscles, though I've noticed that since starting to ride, when I start to eat too much ( and put on a few pounds), the fat goes to my legs instead of my gut. its kinda wierd. I'm a guy, just FYI.
also, if you've picked up your milage, you're probably hungrier, and therefore eating more. however, its really easy to overshoot. for instance, I find it a lot easier to lose weight when training for running (an activity that burns less calories) just becuase it makes me less hungry.
Try counting the acutal calories that you burn and the amount of calories that you eat. I think that you might be surprised.
