If you're a numbers guy like I am, it can be discouraging to see numbers you don't want to see. Instead of focusing on distance go for time. Say you'll ride for an hour today and come hell or high water do it. If you ride for a straight hour outside and only make it 8 miles, so what! Experience comes with time in the saddle, not distance ridden. As you become more and more experienced that ratio will change a bit. For now, ride for time and have fun!!
