After my famed accident, and recovering and fairly happy about rate of recuperation, but I reckon I'll need to be more scientific than I was. With this in mind I'm considering introducing swimming and cycling into my training.
However, I know little about cycling, I do own a rather heavy mountain bike, tho. Does anyone have suggestions about what kind of distance, terrain I should be starting out with? Will I need to change bike? Will I need specific cycling shorts/ any other kit?
I'm not intending to go into duathlon/ triathlon, but it seems to make sense to broaden my fitness regime.
Any advice gratefully received.
