Morning all. I've decided to do some cycling while I am crocked for running. Went to a few cycle shops yesterday and bought myself a Giant defy. Just an entry level road bike, but looking forward to getting it home later this week and giving it a spin.
Used my old rusted mountain bike to cycle 12 miles yesterday and am going to go on a more relaxed, longer jaunt on it today. Quite exciting trying something new and I can already see myself getting into cycling - have even bought fancy shorts and a helmet so I must be serious! lol
Strava has turned into a real battle for me as thousands of people have done local segments on bikes, compared to just tens of people for running segments - moving up the leaderboards should provide some additional motivation.
Hope you feel better soon, Dustin.
