I don't know anything about this specific bike, but I read in your blog that you are about to get your bike... I assume this is the one you are considering.
I haven't taken many opportunities to ride outside, today was my second this year (about 14 miles) However, based on your plan to use the exercycle, it motivated me to spend many hours on an exercycle (580 miles so far this year) On my usual exercycle, I actually multiply the mileage reported by 2/3 because this gets me down to my typical road average speed. My goals are 2006 miles on the exercycle, and 2006 miles on the road... I am a little behind on the exercycle, and way behind on the road, but I am picking up my pace on both...
One warning, don't expect to be effortlessly riding around once you get on the bike. I am finding that hills are a challenge. Take your time, and don't worry about being fast, just worry about keeping at it.
Good luck on taking the next step in your cycling adventure!
