    how to train with a broken bike

    I am waiting on a new fork to come, as mine blew up last week. I was wondering what types of exercises would be good to get in shape for the season ahead, not having a bike.

    I assume spinning would help a bit, but it sucks so bad

    any other suggestions?

    Core exercises and cardio are always good.

    Pushups, crunches, chinups, sprint intervals, preferably up a hill, running the stairs at the football stadium, rowing, etc.
