1 pound in 2 days – total time on the bike: Less than 3-1/2 hours
Doesn’t get much better than that.
When I got sober back in 2009, I trained for a couple half marathons and did my first century ride. It was so much fun! I felt alive and even though I’m at 32 days I never stopped finding new fitness goals. I play tennis on a ladies team at the club and train with. Trainer 3/week. I’m going to climb Half Dome this year too! I love your blog and all the healthy inspirations it has! Thank you!
Thank you, and my pleasure. Fit is the best way to enjoy sobriety (IMHO)… Keep it up.
Cycling or walking which is better for weight loss? I’m not obese by any means nor am I in any position to start long distance running, but I walk 2-3 miles a day just curious.
Depends on the speed. My slow days average around 17.5 mph which is fast by many standards… Fast days are between 20 & 22 though. If you’re talking about riding slow, 10-12 mph, it’s a toss-up. On the other hand, when you look at one hour of my fast days, studies show that you’d have to walk about 50 hours to equal what I do – unless you’re talking about walking better than ten minutes a mile, at which point you start catching up.
I live in Michigan also got over eight hours in on the bike between Sunday and Monday and loved every minute of it. I burned over 4000 calories having fun enjoying the sights and sounds of an early spring. Can’t wait to do it all over again.
Thanks Eric. It’s all good!

The billboard on the bike shop says, A bike ride can fix anything. Ummm… close. I like the saying, of course, because a bike…
29 miles and some change. 1:21:35. Do the math and that’s 21.1 mph for an average. I did that in the saddle of this:…
Reason Number 231 to add cycling to your weight loss plan: I lost two pounds riding my bike. Sunday. Enough said.
Our 8 am century started at the bike shop so naturally, being an avid cycling enthusiast, I look at that as an opportunity for some…
