got my bike today

its a trek 6000


I haven't rode bikes in years and I put about 5 miles on it today. The wind was so strong it wore me out. I was peddling and peddling and not going anywhere. I just rode it on some country roads by my house. None of the trails around here are open till April and I want to build my endurance up first and get used to the bike and shifting before I take it out to the trails. Right now i'm 6'3" and weigh 245. I plan on riding 30+miles a week and i want to get down to ~205 by the end of the year. I smoke too but after riding i have no desire to smoke because I want oxygen so bad, so hopefully riding this bike will make me quit.
