    Good for you! I too just started riding. It's a mile each way to and from my kids' school. So I get in 4 miles a day -2 in AM and 2 in PM. It feels great but I have been sore. I'm just thrilled because last year, I couldn't even make it two blocks!
    I'm pre-sleeve so I can't wait to see what I can do post-sleeve!
    Keep it up!

    After riding last night the only pain I feel is in my butt bones. More commonly referred to as " sit bones" hope that goes away !

    I want to get a bike too but I'm afraid I won't know how to balance on one since it's been so long. Good for you!

    My family got me a new bike for Mother's Day. It is a great way to mix up the exercise routine and I enjoy riding a bike again Enjoy your ride!

    Bike riding is fun. It did take awhile for me to get my balance. I bought a new wider softer seat at walmart for $20.00. no horn to bother my butt bones. My hubby and I go 5 miles a night. This sure has helped get rid of my muffin top. Have fun. Linda
