Sorry so long in getting back to you!

Welcome aboard to our SparkTeam!

Best plan? Keep getting on the bike as much as you can enjoy! Consider getting bike shorts (which are padded) to diminish THAT pain. Other pains should take care of themselves as you become increasingly fit.

During the winters I keep up with Spinning class at my fitness center. Plus I've finally invested in a set of used cross country skis. Many members of our bike club switch over to cross country skiing in the winter.

If you keep loving your time on the bike you may in time want to consider upgrading your bicycle. But for now, stick with what you're doing!

I recently started bike riding for exercise! I rode when I was a kid and loved it! I still love it but I'm trying to increase time and distance without causing myself pain. Any advice? I've been riding 3.5 miles to 5 miles 3 times a week sometimes 4 times a week. It takes me 25-35 minutes. I know I'm slow but I weigh 223 pounds at 5'51/2" so I'm obese. I have a 1 speed bike. Any advice on gradually increasing my biking fitness? Also any advice about how to stay in shape in the winter? I'm 50 years old! I love bike riding its the only exercise I enjoy! emoticon
