I started cycling in 2014 with my Cannondale road bike. It has taken me some time to adjust to riding a road bike comfortably. At first it really hurt to ride my bike, but my boyfriend really helped me adjust my bike to fit me right. He also got me a pair of those padded shorts which I now know are a necessity when riding a road bike. I have been tracking my rides on Strava and now I’m averaging around 20-30 miles per ride.
