    The most I have rode was 20 miles, but it's better than nothing.

    New Cycling Passion :)

    I just started cycling a month ago but I love it already! I'm doing it about two days a week for my cardio. My favourite is the feeling that comes when you think you are dying but you push on anyways.   :)
