Recovering now from carpal tunnel surgery last Wednesday so recumbent exerciser is only cycling I'm allowed right now. Have a fan in front blowing on me with towel under to catch sweat. Nothing like riding on the road, 63 soon 2 b 64, 5' 8" @ 135/140lbs, and don't do anything like effort as when on road. Our 32 to 40 mile no stopping AM rides have no hills, SW FL., so constant pedaling with average 23mph plus, max heart 170bpm average 145/150. Just can't match that riding indoors.
The more you ride, the more you'll ride comfortably at a greater effort.
