It's just self promotion for a new website recently registered.

For the OP, there is a blogger's forum. That's probably the most appropriate place for this. Many discussion sites don't offer that kind of space and would just delete this as spam.

l wanted to point out a rather glaring omission in the OP in that there is no mention of eating less to lose weight. Just riding a bike won't cut it.

I use my road bike on old-school rollers. Not only does it help with balance, but also helps develop a smooth (power-saving) pedal stroke as well. Sometimes I'll add the wind resistance fan that is driven off another belt.

Thanks for your very informative article.

I needed to try a touch of exercise and was looking about purchasing an Exercise Bike to use at home, essentially beginning some wellness.
