I figured I owed it to myself to join one of the biking teams here on SP. I'm training for a Half Ironman triathlon and the bike is my weakest and most dreaded discipline of all three. If I'm spending 56-miles in the saddle, I could definitely use the support and encouragement from the fine folks who are avid bikers.
Cycling outdoors in Chicago in the winter is...hmm...crazy at best, but I'm giving my husband a trainer for Christmas so we'll be able to alternate indoor cycling on our set up. I'm also planning on taking 2 10-week cycling classes starting in January (the indoor long ride and a bike technique/endurance class).
Anyone have any advice on how I can actually befriend my bike and not be so freaked out spending hours on end with her?
You already have everything you need to be a distance athlete...it's mindset, not miles, that separates those who do from those who dream.
