The mileage started pretty slow for me, too. It was toug, because I rode with a friend who could ride much faster and further, but he always rode with me first, and then took off on his own after my ride. The mileage will built for you, too. You are doing great!

Hi there and welcome! It takes time, but if you stick with it, you'll get there. When I first started, I rode a lot, but I did short, easy rides and eased myself into it.

Welcome to the team. Don't worry about having a hard time while starting out. Before you know it you will be riding 25, 50 or even 100 and up. Don't worry keep riding what you can and then you will be able to meet your goal. Take your time and build your endurance base and then move onto longer miles and strength.

Hello, there!

I'm relatively new to biking, too. The longest "trips" I ever go on are 2 1/2 hours, but eventually I plan to go mountain biking with my cousin. I haven't gone cycling recently because I ordered a more comfortable seat and I'm still waiting for it to arrive. Until then, I'm using my stationary bike, but it, too, has a pretty uncomfortable seat. lol
