Great accomplishmen! Make sure that as you increase your distance you also increase your hydration and nutrition. The more your ride, the more water and fuel you need to keep going.

You're awesome. Very cool to keep adding distance, but don't get discouraged if you don't one week here and there. It comes with time. I went from puking after one mile, to being in the saddle comfortably for 5+ hrs. Bit by bit, mile by mile. Keep it fun! That's the most important thing in my eyes.

Keep up the good work. You are doing well, too by stretching. That makes a big difference. Be sure to Enjoy your ride!

Welcome


Keep pedaling and keep increasing your K's.

I have kids in my church group (high scholl age) that find it amazing that I can ride for 30-40 miles non-stop and on the bike for 2+ hours. I said it is no different than them running 3-10 miles you build up to it.

Now I find it nothing to go 30-40 miles in fact I'm surprised the ride is done.

Welcome!

Do not try and think outside the box. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no box.

Hi all, I'm a new member.....the week before last I was managing to ride 4kms twice each day with my husband. Last week we upped it to 6kms twice each day. This week we have managed to up it to 8kms twice a day....so far, so good. Boy!! tired legs at the end of it. But, stretching helps big time. We are going to try to up it each week by another 2kms each trip.
