How long off my bike before I pay a real price in my conditioning?
February has been a crappy month here - a wintery mix of snow and rain and temperatures lower than my riding limit. I've been off my bike for 2 full weeks. I don't think I've gone 2 weeks off the bike for more than 2 years. I can feel the kilos returning to my tummy.
Last year was a record year for me - almost 13K km. (Not much for some I know, but for me, 62 y/o, it was a bunch! Five full centuries and over 22 metric centuries.)
There are some challenging rides in May that I'm planning.
What is your experience with loosing form due to downtime?
