New bike! New to riding! Do I need a computer?
I am so excited!! I am 46 years old, my three sons are getting a little older and I decided to buy something for myself. I live on a mountain and there is a beautiful loop of about 25 miles that I have been wanting to ride for years. I owned a mountain bike that I turned into a hybrid but I couldn't get as far as fast as I wanted. Not that I was ever really a rider. My boys have inherited those bikes now and I decided it was time to get my first road bike. I bought it used last week and got to go on my first ride last Saturday. Almost did the whole loop with the guy that sold me the bike. I will hopefully be riding this loop most Saturdays. My question is do I need to use a bike computer or should I just get something to hold my iPhone? Won't I be able to track my speed, time and distance with an iPhone app?
