So my girlfriend says to me:
"If you ride your bike all season, you won't have to go to the gym. Riding is like working out because you get sore after. Your back hurts, right?"
My counter argument:
"I'm sore because of a) seat positioning and b) i'm too tense. That soreness has nothing to do with the soreness you get from going to the gym"
As a normal person who goes to the gym and does normal sports, I think I am right. But as a new rider, does her statement actually make any kind of sense at all? She has been riding for 3 years. Me ... 3 days. Hahaha. The only way I could see her statement as being true is if I were to be zooming down curvy roads and needing to lean lots ... maybe that would make use of some muscles.
So what is truth? Anyone? (=
