OK, I have no experience with a trainer, but have one on the way: Kurt Kinetics Road.
I'm cleared to ride indoors for eight weeks, but not outside. Recovering from surgery to repair a shattered sternum and hole towrn in my abdomin (1x3) from impaling self on end of mtn bike handlebars. The surgery hurt worse!!!
Anyway, I want to get back in shape sensibly and then build on a solid base. One hour a day for ?? days per week and then pick up the time and pace.
So, all of you excercise experts (more experienced than me) please give me some suggestions for maximizing the use of a trainer.
