Intresting, I just did a 35 mile bike ride at last minute notice. It was a tour of Chicago. Did it on a borrowed mountain bike, with a broken stick holding the handle together and a front break pad missing. Averaged about 15mph. The point is, I was riding with a group of guys who ride 150 miles a week and have $2500 bikes, they were within ten years of my age either way (42). All looked out of shape!!! sagging stomachs, weak arms. So I took a look at all of the other riders, very few guys "looked in shape" some were outright overweight. Just an observation. By the way Crossfit conditioning pulled through, haven't been on a bike in over 5 years and finshed strong, without sorness. . .unless you count my butt!
