    Don't be afraid to just hop on the bike "to turn the pedals", as it were. If it's crappy out, go ahead and throw it on the trainer without your cadence sensor or any of that stuff, and no targets. ...

    I'm a huge Ibex wool fan, honest! The moisture is the main concern, as I can layer all day and night with the all-season wardrobe I've built up.
