    Training for La Bella Preme

    I started training for this ride with the team formed by The Unlikely Cyclist shop owner Vntgdrms.

    Today was to have been first training ride as a team. Weather had other ideas so instead we rode our bikes on trainers inside the shop with Vntgdrms coaching us. This was my first time really riding a trainer. WOW....more of a workout than I anticipated. Now I want to get a trainer so I can ride regardless of weather or time of day.
    Move along....nothing to see here....anymore.

    Trainer that your bike goes on? Or standalone trainer?

    I got my wife one of those spin bike trainers - she loves it, I need to be outside. I was tempted to get one of those kirk kinetic models but again... I detest riding indoors.

    Glad you liked it though, it's a great way to break up your routine, especially on rainy days.

    It was a KK trainer that your bike goes on. I prefer outdoors as well but like the idea of being able to ride even if weather uncooperative or time of day I am able to ride might keep me from riding otherwise. I don't lie riding in the dark...

    We'll see about actually getting one but at least now I know what riding one is like. BTW Vntgdrms is one tough coach. Made us work!

    The rock and road is the one I was ogling... it moves with you so if you stand, it feels natural. I may still get one.

    That looks like a cool ride, which one are you doing?

    Doing the long 63 (?) mile one.

    I like the look of the rock and road one as well. Not sure if I can swing that if I go for the purchase....Depends on how certain things play out over next few weeks related to my loss of employment.
