I was actually going to start a thread like this!
Not only has spinning helped me over the winter...but I've found that I'm actually MORE fit/performing better as this year's cycling season begins, than when I was riding regularly back in the fall!
3 months of spinning has done more to improve my performance, than 9 months of actual riding. And the neat thing is: Since I don't take well to exercise for exercise's sake; and I don't like being bored, I'm doing mainly short Tabata Interval workouts on the spin bike. They've helped more than anything in MY ENTIRE LIFE- and I'm 50 years old.
Getting a spin bike was the best investment I ever made, next to my road bikes! Really improved my climbing, too- and my aerobic capacity has improved so much, that it's ridiculous.
