How much did you do? It's good to start slowly and work up, not that I tend to do that! I tend to get carried away!

I have to admit that I don;t know how far I went, but I didn't think it was far enough to feel like that. About half way round I was starting to feel it, so that by the time I got home I was knackered lol
I could do with a pedometer for the bike lol or, I might just drive the route tomorrow and see how far it was.
Like I say, though, I didn't think it was very far and unfortunely I didn't pay attention to what time I went out either so I don;t know how long I took - I am useless lol

Hi

If your are serious about cyccling to et fit and lose a bit of weight then a odometer is a must, they are reasobale and you can pick them upin most cycle shops , or on line. They are very very easy to fit and they are such a boost to your routine. Its great to add up your miles over a week, you can set them to show burnt calories even.

keep up the good work, but word of warning gentle at first and build up. There is always a start with good intention with alot of people who get on a bike to get fit,!!! but a million reason not to get the bike out the shed or garage after overdoing it for the first week or so.

Hi Jesterstears, there is a great site called mapmyrun.com. You map out where you have been and it measures the distance. It is also a great planning tool as it gives you the elevation between two points.

Bizarrly i just mapped my walk and that was 1.28 miles as well lol. I thought it was 1.5 so been under estimating there!

Stretch?? I didn't do any stretching, but then I wasn't going going at a major pace either I didn't think.
Went round the same trip today, and STILL didn't remember to make a note of what time I'd left so I still don't know how long it takes me to do that 2 miles *sigh*
