Been able to ride seriously 2 weeks now, and today did a 50 miler!!! It kind of hurt...not used to time in the saddle. I was happy though, averaged 17 mph for the trip! Cycling is great...

Congrats! The saddle soreness will fade over time, just keep riding. I too just did my longest ride on Memorial day a solo century so I know your pain first hand. It feels AWESOME! live it up and try for 60, 75 etc...

Cycling yours,

George

Congrats-50 miles will seem like nothing after awhile...took me awhile to break in my Flite saddle,thats natural.Just make sure it stays enjoyable and don't get too obsessed with numbers of miles at first.Work on keeping form smooth and fatigue will melt away.JUST RIDE,bud!
