IIRC, in another post you said you were around 170( and 6' plus)? Assuming the scale is somewhat accurate - and it's probably as accurate as most ways of testing - the most you should expect to drop without dropping lean mass is ~3%, or about 5 lbs. How much are you hoping to lose?

Also, make sure you are eating for recovery when you do your longer rides and/or are riding back-to-back days. I really notice a big difference when I eat properly after a ride, especially when trying to work on a deficit the rest of the day. Carefully measure what you are eating - a kitchen scale is great. And keep track of what you are eating on the bike and adjust accordingly.
