    I have been riding bikes for years but my girlfriend is just starting. She feels like she needs to do some beginner workouts for her legs to get them in great cycling form. However, I don't remember how I started off.

    Can anyone send us some tips or advice on certain exercises for your legs?
    Thanks very much!

    Squats :) Do low weight, high reps. If you aren't comfortable with doing squats, you can do leg presses. For biking, you probably want to do 25-30 reps per set.

    Weights can't hurt, but the best thing to do is just get her out riding... The muscles will develop in time. Start with short distances and work up.
