Indoor training videos for a long winter.

Do any of the Cydes/Athenas have recommendations for indoor training videos to make magnetic resistance training a little less tedious? I have looked at several sites but wanted some veteran input as some are quite pricey. I like the idea of actual scenery instead of a video of a spinning class. Thanks in advance.

We've got a few of the Real Rides dvds and like them. Some were filmed on roads that we've ridden on.

I have some of these Dvd's http://www.globalride.net/, and the scenery is very pleasant. I for one do not like the coaching on these Dvd's tho'... I actually prefer the spinning class type of Dvd's for training. To me they are just more to the point, and work better in improving my fitness...
