I DO think Spinning made a nice difference, but it just isn't the same as being out on the roads, as my first few rides have shown me...lol!

Great ride! I use apple sauce and baby food in those squeeze pouches myself. It beats all those processed ones that I have found.

I did spin class last year 2-3 times a week and I still had a hard time when I started riding. This year I took off and didn't notice a difference other than gaining weight. So next winter I'll spin regardless if I can get out and ride or not!!

The only way out is through...

Keep at it and you'll be right up there with them. Betcha they were SO APPRECIATIVE that you pulled the ride together!

...and FWIW I did spinning 2x week all winter and I'm STILL marveling over how much more hitting the roads takes outta ya!

Congrats on leading the ride. I wouldn't be too concerned about the type of fuel, but rather the engine. Get yourself in shape and fuel will then come to be important. For me, rides beyond 2 hours means a swallow of honey every hour there after for instant energy.

Don't be too hard on yourself. It's early in the season. You'll have plenty of rides to get in shape.

Kudos on leading a ride! I'm the Ride Coordinator for the Chattanooga Bike Club. Sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get people to lead!

...and then in the middle of everything, you realize you're alive right now, and the time to live is right now!

You reminded me that I need to bring fruit and cheese with me as my neighborhood rides get longer. I have been riding around my house and it is hillier than where I used to ride but since I started with one block I just grabbed a water bottle and left. Thanks for the reminder that as I ride longer I will need to refuel.

I led a bicycle club ride and 3 other club members joined me. I was the slowest, weakest one! They did spinning classes all winter! We had some moderate hills but big headwinds and I really pooped out. Realized I needed to bring more/better fuel for tough rides.
