That can take 36-48 hours if you’ve had a really demanding couple of days,” explains Matt Rowe, former professional, now part-time racer and founder of Rowe&King coaching.
Next you need to pick a bike that fits your budget and riding style. Are you going to log casual miles on the weekends? Do you want to use your bike for exercise? Are you planning on eventually doing long-distance rides like centuries or racing? Road bike frames have specific geometries and components, tailored for each of these goals at every price point.
