Just Got a Road Bike, After A Week Cycling Got Harder?
Hi I come from riding a mountain bike for most of my life, but when I decided to get a new bike I wanted to try out a road bike. I am pretty overweight and unfit so I thought it could help me lose weight. At first I started biking around 10 miles a day which was a lot for me but was not tiring. After doing that everyday for a week I started getting tired. From barely biking a mile I am sweating a storm and can barely breathe, can someone explain what is going on? When I ride my mountain bike everything is fine, I can go even farther than 10 miles, why is it that I can't ride my road bike? If it helps it is a used Sciwinn Phocus 1400.
