"other than the sheer boredom of it all "- that sounds to me like "Other than the fact that it sucks in every conceivable way, is there any downside?". My point being, that the reason I bicycle in the first place is because it is exercise that I like, which means I'll actually do it, as opposed to sitting by the computer snacking and thinking "I should probably be exercising". So if it was sheer boredom, there would be very little positive left, in my mind.
One of the advantages of riding outside is that you do encounter the unexpected- so one day is a nice ride, then the next day, you hit the headwind, or you ride with people faster than you- anyway, you sometimes wind up working harder than you planned for whatever reason.
