In my early 60's and just getting back into cycling. My goal in the spring is to ride a few centuries likely with climbing involved. Haven't run seriously for 20 years and back then is when I also did my cycling. Cycling is going fine. Rides range from 15 to 40 miles with some hills and I've got a nasty climb that I'll eventually get to the top of. My problem is travel. Last year I traveled almost 50% of the time and exercise equipment even in a decent hotel is limited. At best I have a choice between an elliptical trainer and a stationary recumbent bike. I won't use a treadmill because I can't get my heart rate up walking and I hated the things even when I was a runner. My inclination is to use the stationary bike, but these things are so unrepresentative that one wonders if they even use the same muscles. Or do I just use whatever and consider the week a cardio week.
BTW, I don't really have time with my schedule to get to a gym, but thinking about dumbbells which are generally also available. Anyone got a good dumbbell for dummies reference?
