Thanks, this is probably what I'll end up going with, and pick the diet back up afterwards, its just bad timing on my part.
I loves me some cycling, almost as much as I love weight lifting. The truth is, I'd do the cycling even if there was no calorie burn, I just enjoy it, although I enjoy heavy deadlifts even more.
As far as mixing the two, I really only do cycling on the weekends these days, usually one long ride, somewhere around 40-60 miles is enough to give me my fix for the week, and then the rest of the week is spent doing standard weight training (right now I'm on a 4 day split, but I've also done 5 day splits or 3 day full body routines).
Admittedly, it's probably better to split it up and do 2 or 3 shorter rides of like 20 miles during the week rather than one big long one, but thats what serves my schedule best right now, plus I ride with some friends and its what they like to do.
Just leave a couple of days between a heavy leg day and your long ride, otherwise pain will ensue.
For me though, weights are the focus, and bikes are just for fun. Because I don't want to sacrifice lifts for biking, I'm not nearly as fast as the people I ride with, and I don't do any "training" on the bike (like speed workouts, intervals, hill repeats, etc.) I just go at a comfortable pace for a comfortable distance, and try not to let it interfere with my lifting. It keeps me from being a really good biker, but I don't care so much about that, it's just a fun hobby for me. Thus, I keep it pretty sporadic. If I get the mileage too high, it starts to interfere with my lifting (especially squats, deads, and any leg work) and that is unacceptable, but keeping it reasonable (for me, probably 80-100 miles a week or less) is a good amount that doesn't interfere with the lifts.
Just experiment and find the balance that works for you. It's definitely fun, and I don't ever want to stop doing it.
Thanks for the advice guys!
