How long to regain staima and strench

Finally back on the bike after a serious neck injury took the road bike out on saSaturdand just didn't have anything Lin me to ride like I did five months ago. I've been using the commuter bike for the last 2 months but only going slow on the commute to work also gained a lot of wieght with the broken neck and all got up to 240 pounds so gained about 25 poundsvjust hoping to be able to resume some rides of 50 miles or so really soon but seems a lot for now

No replacement for saddle time. If youre looking for strength stamina, you need one to three hard days on the bike. Mix with longer rides on the weekend.

When end I used to commute more regularly. Id do my speed work in the mornings and chill ride going home. Speedy morning means I warm up faster and less cold.

Riding the same pace over n over will hit a plateau and can be harder to break because of habits formed.

@jsigone knows of what he speaks, after his recovery from an injury a few years ago . Listen to your body, ride, and stretch afterwards.
