any cycling tips for a novice.
as title, my dad recently gave me his road bike to help me get fit and lose weight. I've been riding a few weeks now and was just wondering if any cycling enthusiasts could help me to get the most out of this new hobbie/interest. some things i would like info on are:
-what kind of food(s) should I eat and what should i stay away from?
-what equipment should I use, i,e helmet, lycra, clip-on shoes etc
-riding tips. currently doing 1x 14mile route a day but would it be better to 2x7miles routes
-any other info/tips you think I should know.
thanks in advance
inb4 cool story bro or TLDR.
