I have a GT Aggressor 2.0.
I am 5 feet 5 inches and was around 106kg 8 months ago and my current weight has dropped to 65kg.
Hang on, not just because of cycling
Did some strict diet control, went to gym n started a daily morning cycling routine from Feb' 2012.
My route is around 15kms to 17kms and the average speed is around 20km/h to 25km/h. I try to keep the gear combination of 2 & 6 for the entire journey (irrespective of incline's in the route).
I am not trying to reduce my weight anymore; but obviously would like to maintain it. Have certain queries regarding the same -
- Is it enough what I am doing; I mean to maintain my weight? I am following the strict diet as well + evening walk of half an hour + after dinner walk of half an hour again.
- As I said, to keep the cycling hard, I don't change the gears even on incline's. So, do we burn more calorie's like this or is it just a myth? Please a little bit of guidance on cycling in terms of burning calories, if I am not following the correct way!
