When it's raining like today I "ride" my home trainer - I miss the fresh air - a bit, a I sit next to an open window... Anyway, I think I am burning a lot more calories on this trainer as on the real bike - After a training of an hour on the hometrainer I am floored/soaked. When on the sports bike for approx. 90 minutes I seem to have worked less. (Feels better though.) Would a daily training on the hometrainer beats a daily ride on the real bike when aiming for weight loss, stamina?
