I rode about 10 miles exploring the trail system around my new house. There's a couple other routes that I can't wait to try, and plenty of miles of trails for when I start doing those long distance training rides.
I felt pretty out of shape when I first got started...it's definitely more physically challenging to face the rolling hills and changing winds of the outdoors than it is to ride a stupid stationary bike (hear my disdain?). But by the end, I was huffing along comfortably again. It comes back quickly...just like (dare I say it) riding a bike?!?It's going to be cold and snowy for the next couple weeks, so I don't know when I'll be able to get outside again. But it was well worth it to ride outside even just today!
