Exercise bike vs. outdoor riding
During the spring, summer and fall, I would go out a few times a week during lunch and ride 10 miles or so. I decided to use our exercise room at work for the first time yesterday and got on the exercise bike thinking it would be a piece of cake for me. I couldn't believe how fast I got tired, and then it dawned on me... When I'm doing regular bike riding, I can coast. I guess I normally coast quite a bit.
