When substituting indoor for outdoor "hours" the amount of time in each effort zone is what you are hoping to replicate since you don't coast indoors. . You may want to do your ride at or near the end of a week of very light effort and rest. You not only need to rest the muscles but rebuild your energy reserves.

Do you have a heart rate monitor? they are an inexpensive tool that works well to measure fatigue.
