Good on you Ruth. We bought bikes year past Christmas and they've only been out a couple of times but this year i AM cycling. Everywhere out of our village is a hill so i have to put bike on car and drive about 20mins away but thats okay. When the sun is shining i really enjoy it. Looking forward to being fit enough to cycle from house!
Good on you for giving it a go, I have a bike but it needs a good service at Halfords! I did do about two mins on my exercise bike yesterday tghough and it knackered me!

Thanks all! My bottom is really sore now though.......
My asthma kicks in whenever I try and get out on my bike, but I am going out tonight to give it another go.

We have got some lovely countryside near us and the new forest on our doorstep. Not sure if I can make it there quite yet, but I am going to build up to it slowly.
Well managed to get out on my bike tonight and managed more than I thought. I gave it a good 45 minutes around the village and through the forest and I was absolutely exhausted by the time I got home.

I have to admit I am feeling it a bit now, have felt a little lightheaded since i got back, I have had my shake and a bar since i have been back and I think I will take it a bit easier next time.

I dont want my new found ability to exercise to back fire on me.!!
