    "Zoning out" while on a bike ride?? New cyclist

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hi everyone, I am a new cyclist. I've been riding for 6 months and so far have completed a 34 mile event at the NC/SC border, and 2 half centuries. I absolutely love it. Many of my training rides when I am riding by myself tend to take place on a long beautiful paved rail-trail bike path in our town. Yesterday I swore I was only going to ride 20-25 miles. Long story short, the next thing I knew, I had ridden all the way to the end of the trail, so my ride ended up being 32 miles. This is a no-car trail, so it's not like I have to be vigilant for cars (more like deer and raccoons and things like that), etc. but it's just so weird to me that I find myself getting in the groove and feeling so great that I forget that I've ridden further than I intended to. Does anyone else ever do this???

    Hi Rita. Welcome to the forum.

    As to your question, oh yeah. It's part of the addiction and why bicycling is more of a lifestyle than just a hobby for so many of us. Keep up the good work.

    +1000 on what North Woods Gal said, it is indeed part of it. Welcome, and enjoy riding!
