I have started cycling for about 4wks now. Would you say cycling 3x a day for an hr with a break is too much?!

    Welcome to the forum. Quite possibly in answer to your question, but a lot depends on how hard your cycling during this time and your general fitness to start with. It may be once a day for longer time and riding a bit harder is better for you. Only you can tell how you feel after riding, when you do something to much it can become tedious or no doing you any good so build in rest days. Have a look around a few of the previous posts as well.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Thank you! I don't cycle too fast and I weigh in at 10 stone. But I do have 1 or 2 rest days and I might try and cycle for longer the next time!

    Fewer longer rides would be better. As long as it doesn't turn in to a chore it's all good. Keep it fun and get some variation in your routes.

    Very True.

    I stopped riding for a while because I was getting tired of going the same old routes time and time again.
