Hello Folks. I’m posting this request at Ann’s suggestion. I am a complete novice and have recently undergone knee surgery before which I was a keen runner wit’s the Redway Runners. (I’m sure I would’ve been in your way on occasion) Running is probably out of the question for me now and cycling has been recommended to me as and ideal way to help with my recovery. However, I would find even these gentler rides of around 10 to15 miles extremely difficult. I wonder if anyone ever does any shorter jaunts of around 5 miles. I would be keen to join in and hopefully after a few rides would be more capable of the longer distances.
