I got on the bike this June and was enjoying it all summer long, but it is soon to be over.
Now I am looking at the winter ride options and need some advice.
I like long rides on bike trails, not after the speed very much, but riding itself is fun.
Trainer seems to be too boring. I don't think I can do more than an hour on it, even watching the TV.
One bike all season does not look very practical to me. I have only one bike CAAD8 and I don't want to kill it prematurely with rougher roads, salt, water and rust. The thin tires also don't look to made for such rides.
What do you think my options are? Is it a mountain bike? Cyclocross? Gym? Sofa?
