Hi from Johannesburg RSA

Hi, I'm 53 and have just taken up cycling (6 months)after double bypass. Riding has made a huge difference and I can't wait for weekends to get out on the road. Battling with the hills but after 35 years smoking expect to struggle any tips to get the lungs working harder would be appreciated.

Why wait for the weekends? Have you considered bike commuting to work and for errands?
