Winter plans: trainer or "stationary bike"?
It's getting cooler here in Philly, and I know that I just won't go for rides as far as often in January as I will in April. I want to keep riding, though, over the winter -- even if it's not outside.
I'm thinking about a trainer so that I can ride my bike indoors, but my husband points out that if my bike is attached to a gadget up on the 3rd floor, the odds of me going out when the weather is nice are much lower than they would be if the bike were more accessible. He wonders if it might be worth it to get a cheapo bike to use with the trainer.
Or would it be better to just get the sort of stationary bike that they have in gyms? You know, something that has pedals and resistance, but was never meant to actually move.
