    Hi All

    I have decided to take up cycling to loose weight @ the age of 43,
    I have been giving a mountain bike from a friend and have started cycling on an old railway talk that has been changed for cycle use
    This is my second day cycling and have managed 6 km on each day as fitness level is very low as have been a couch potato for the last 10 years
    I have had to take brakes due to thigh strain , Getting of the bike and walking relives this and then back on

    I would be glad of any helpful tips and train programs from the more experienced cyclists
