I just joined calorie king last weekend because I'm about to graduate from college in may and decided that looking a little more professional needed to involve looking more healthy. A while back I bought a Schwinn Ridge AL for getting around campus and it has worked out very well for cycling so far. I'm wondering if I shouldn't look into a road bike for some of these longer rides like you guys are talking about. Right now my longest ride was the one from today at 7 miles.
How do you approach the calories lost from cycling?
What kind of bike do you use?
How far do you usually go?
