Hey everyone!! I've been living a healthier lifestyle since I turned 40 in November, and I've lost 13 pounds (yes, slowly) with another 5-10 pounds to go. I've started running just this winter and recently ran a 5K, and am now focusing on running for the enjoyment.
I've recently purchased a road bike, a Fuji Finest, but I have one problem. I'm so rusty with bike riding, that I've only ridden it twice in the month and an half that I've owned it, and have fallen both times! I need the time to go by myself (without my well-intentioned, loving husband) and get comfortable with it. I've ridden a cheap mountain bike for ever and this is my first road bike. There is quite a difference with how it handles the road, and that's what I'm trying to get used to. I'm also not that great on the bike, so I'm a bit nervous too.
I'm hoping someone out there could give me some advice. There's a bike ride at the end of the summer (here in northern Maine that's early August) to raise money for cancer and I'd like to be ready to ride it.
One day at a time.
