Hi, haven't posted much in awhile, been too busy working
Haven't been riding much either because of the above criteria even though I have bought a head and tail light for my rig. Put 2 folding baskets on it though for the odd ride to the market in the early a.m. hrs. That works out really well...but I digress....
I was talking to someone (at work of all places) about how I needed to get a trainer and discussed the noise levels of mags vs fluids etc....well I never knew that he liked to ride bikes. Not dressing up in costumes and the like but he has and does incorporate wheeled training in his health regimen.
He has of all things a roller! I never would've guessed! He invited me over.
I had never seen one although read about them, mostly bad things...like falling off and the like...But I tried it after A LOT of encouragement and ...I loved it. I've been thinking strongly about a trainer since I haven't been doing any real riding lately and have been planning to get one for the 'foul' months that are approaching. I've tried a few mag and fluid trainers and even with a dvd movie to watch, and fan, my mind still wanders to health issues....bills....family...etc...and you DO need to keep a more focused attitude on the rollers which I really liked. Perhaps after you're comfortable with it your mind can drift a bit but I found it to be very.......hmmmm...meditative...oh gosh...perhaps zen like! Good for the soul.
So I'm doing my research online.
Any Rollers Out There?
