    Just get out and ride :-)

    You will surprised how quickly you fitness will increase without any training programme.
  • Yep, just get out and have fun.
    You don't say if you are otherwise fit. If this is the first exercise you have done for a while, then general stretching is good. If you have good all round fitness, then you probably know that you should listen to your body and not push it too hard at first.
