Cycling conditioning

Well lets just say the treadmill or any cardio machine at the gym isnt really for me...if im going to be doing cardio id prefer to do it alone and in a good environment (gym isnt one for me).Im doing this mostly for hockey and to get in better shape all together so i can last for the whole kickboxing workout.I play division 1 hockey at my highschool so im not a completely lazy bastard but just not in the shape id like to be.

So with that said id like it if i could receive some tips on how to go about biking and some good biking workouts you guys do and maybe i could fit it into my plan....


Any advice is appreciated

That still doesn't answer my question..... What kind of bike is it? Your type of bike will determine how you are going to ride it and workout.

If it's a BMX bike or beach cruiser, I would suggest getting a different bike. The ideal (imo) bike is a road bike. Mountain bikes are good too.

So... for the second time. What kind of bike do you own?

Start off getting used to the bike and how it feels. I ride on a weekly schedule. You want to shoot for 30 to 40 miles a week. Throw in some hills.

What are you looking to do?
