how should i start out riding bike so im not tired right away and still get a good work out.
Cycling will help tone & firm a lot of muscles on your body…but mostly the leg muscles. No, you won’t get all "bulked up" like a body builder. Simply tone & firm the muscle & lose fat.
Cycling will also help the cardiovascular system immensely. If it’s been a while since you’ve been on a bike or just starting – click on the link below & read it all, including all sub-links. A lot of great info. Also, see the link on cadence…
"The speed at which the pedals turn, measured in Revolutions Per Minute. Inexperienced cyclists tend to ride in higher gears than they should, pedaling at a slower cadence.
Most experienced cyclists pedal at cadences in the range of 70-90 RPM. This puts less strain on the joints, particularly the knees. Racing cyclists often use even higher cadences for bursts of acceleration."
