I've thrown up only once.
I've popped the chain only once, and that was my fault. I got a little too aggressive while climbing a hill. The problem appeared to be too much shifting, too fast.
My legs feel a little stronger. I have slightly more endurance. I can now use harder gears on the hills where I formerly used first. There is still a little pain after a ride, but it's a good type of pain, if you know what I mean. I feel like I received a good work out.
I've found drivers to be very nice. But then again, I cycle through a small town, and at off peak hours.
I am concerned about the arrival of colder weather, and it will be difficult to put the bike away for the winter. The issue is losing all that progress I'm making. Buying a stationary bike isn't in the cards. I had one a long time ago, and I found it to be excruciatingly boring. Join a gym? Price isn't an issue. Some are very affordable. I never saw myself as a gym kind of guy, but then again, I never thought I'd be on a bike again, either.
