The best part about picking up a new hobby is telling everyone you’ve done so, becoming incredibly invested in it (both financially and emotionally), and then giving up three weeks later to the immense relief of your partner and mates, who have already grown tired of you dropping freshly learnt terminology from said hobby into conversation. Then the second-best part is listing all of the gear you bought online for half the price you paid last month.
Think about how you intend to use the bike, and how you might want to grow with the bike (for example: maybe you can only ride 20 miles now, but you have a 75-mile charity ride in your sights). Then work with your local bike shop to find the right pick.
Pro athletes might be able to string five, six, seven days back to back no problem, because a lot of it is generally more steady state. Once within race season, the intensity and travelling causes a lot more fatigue, so they would need a rest day.
If you’re going out, and feeling sluggish, and you can’t complete the session you want to complete, that’s an obvious sign. Listen to your body, the sensations and how you feel. I’d say anybody riding their bike six or seven times a week is probably riding too much. The other one is heart rate. You get used to the way your heart rate picks up. If you’re struggling to get your heart rate to go up as normal, that’s a sure sign that you’re fatigued and due a rest day.
