I recently purchased a bike (it was an inexpensive hybrid) and have been going on semi-regular bike rides with my friend. We usually don't go that far, but yesterday we did 6 miles round trip, and I was wondering what I would need to do to be able to do 20 miles, because that is more or less the distance between where he lives and where I live. Yesterday, towards the end of the ride, I had plenty of energy but my quads were just like "Dude, we are not going to work anymore" (bastards). I felt great after though. what should I do to get to this kind of distance? Distance is the only thing too, I don't care about speed or time, I assume this trek would take a couple of hours.
What can i do to build up the necessary muscles for this?
