I'm assuming the bulging muscles are not a good thing to you?

I've noticed that biking has increased the strength in my legs, as well as my upper back and shoulders.

Although, I love my legs and love what bicycling has done for them. But yes, bicycling does definitely define your leg muscle, try to stretch after you ride and yoga or pilates will help elongate your muscles.

We are all made of stars, some just shine brighter.

Sweat is your fat, crying! :)

Curious to see everyone's thoughts on getting bulky legs from bicycling? I have been riding my bike for one hour a day, 4 days a week for 8 weeks, and have noticed that, while I hae lost almost 10 lbs, and my waist has shrunk, by thighs are getting bigger! (I have actually gone UP a pant size in the legs) I've always heard trainers defending bicycling when women accuse it of giving them big legs, and Ive always beleived them, but now Im not so sure. My diet is healthy, it certainly isnt water weight...Should I ease off the biking and replace it with something else? Anyone else ever notice this in their own experience? Any ideas on other sources of fun (free!) aerobic activities that wont bulk the muscle?
