Looks like a wet windy week so in about 15 minutes I am going to do my first full ride on the trainer. Anyone else been on the trainer yet this season?
Yes, sadly.... Its going to snow tonight. Very depressing.
Psimet, Im in Naperville so I expect you will be getting some snow as well. At least thats what the weather man says, but what does he know
Ack. given my work schedule and having a wife and three kids, I do three rides a week on a trainer at night. To quote Alice Cooper: "Welcome to My Nightmare."
Blue RC4, Salsa La Cruz
When I am on te trainer I use Spinerval DVDs. Much better than just riding and watching tv or reading.
How about some trainer recommendations? I'm in the market for one - quit the gym and no longer have access to spinning classes.
Real Axiom V3 from Performance. It is the budget alternative to a Computrainer. You ride the with video while the trainer is changing the resistance as ascend and descend. The software shows your wattage, speed, gradiant, HR and so on. Very cool trainer for those long winter months.
I've been on it once already...but I had a good video to preview for school/work: Walking With Cavemen produced by the BBC~yeah, its not everyone's cup of tea, but damn good stuff for nerds like me!
Last winter was not too terrible...cross your fingers!
Invest your cash in warm clothing, a beater bike and ride through winter!!! If you dress right, its like riding on a summer day. You stay motivated cause your out riding, while your friends are turning into Jack Torrance (The Shining) riding their trainers
What's also nice is people in cars give you plenty of room cause they think your crazy!
