if you do prehabilitation, stretching, mobility 14x a week and make sure to watch out for warning signs of overuse injuries (IT band syndrome....hip bursistis....constant pressure on your taint causing ED) then no, not really. If you ride <45miles a week, sure.

Personally I'm looking into getting a road bike. Shits so fun leaning in, going fast as fuck, and whipping down a path.

I like the idea of riding a bicycle because 1) I make the speed happen 2) its healthy in moderation 3) I'm too pussy/smart to ride a motorcycle, and I like the wind flying in my face.

Apparently those kinds of bikes costs upwards of the same amount as cars, as well as the upkeep and maintenance. I've only seen one in person before and it was kept hanging on the wall close to the ceiling so no one could fucking touch it without a ladder. And I had no idea those Le Tours last like 3 fucking weeks. Blows my mind every time. By the way, saving that pic for future fapping, thanks mate.

I do both mountain and long distance biking, and mountain biking is fun and all, but it's so fucking rough. I can go 30 miles on the Greenway, but give me five minutes at the local mountain bike trails and I'm spent.

I also worry about hurting myself short or long term through injury or pushing my joints too much. I've heard riding with bad form can fuck you up in the long run, and I feel like mountain biking has just got to be way easier to fuck yourself up with. I don't care about the thrill. I ride a bike as exercise, and on the greenway I have dozens of miles of beautiful forest traveling along a river to observe.

Studded tires. They actually work pretty well on black ice. They'll make you slip on dry pavement, though.
TBH winter biking in a city is pretty dangerous, hardly any sidewalks are plowed so people have to bike on the shoulder of the road, and assholes like to honk and sideswipe you for fun. on top of that, for a month or two we have 2 hours of daylight per day tops and if you aren't covered in blinkey lights you might get squished.
I and most other people who winter bike only do it because we're too poor for a car + insurance + gas etc.

iv'e just started biking recently for exercise purposes, using an old, beat, rusty mountain bike with no shocks on it on some pavement trails around my town. I'm thinking of getting a specialized mountain bike to hit some dirt trails, if I find that I enjoy the paved roads more, a mountain bike is just fine right? I know road bikes exist for a reason but i just feel like a mountain bike is more versatile, can be used for road and dirt.

I only have a mountain bike and I've ridden it on paved trails over 30 miles before without issue. I think the biggest difference is that a road bike will go faster and the tires have better traction on pavement than your average mountain bike wheels.

That said if it came down to owning one or the other I would absolutely go with the mountain bike if just for its versatility. Mountain biking is really fun, but it can be really tiring and dangerous. Bad technique can cause damage long term, as can when riding on pavement.

Anyway, have fun! I haven't ridden in nearly a year, but I've been doing jogging and weight lifting. I might get back into biking again now that the weather is cooling down.

To my mind bycycling and correct nutrition are the best ways for weight loss. I used both of them in the past and now I am in good shape. Recently I was interested in non-surgical ways that help to lose some weight too. So, I decided to try to use it when I visit New York. I found full information about non-surgical ways on https://www.beautyfixmedspa.com/ I hope it will be successful for me.

Road bikes puncture incredible easily due to high pressure tyres.

Would always recommend a MTB over anything else just because of how damn versatile they are. Roads, Grass, Dirt, whatever. Road bikes are too damn bitch made for that stuff.
