Thanks everyone. I'll def look into schemes to get me started and there are a few people at my running club that would cycle with me. My lack of confidence is kind of why I chose to challenge myself. May dig out my old mb...but I did hate it!
I've done lots of endurance running and am a confident ows. Now I've entered IM Uk 2015. Trouble is I'm terrible on a bike. I've neither speed or confidence. Haven't ridden in a few years. I've bought a cheap road bike to get me started. Can anyone please give me some advice on where to start? I'm really afraid I'll time out on the bike.
