Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Trainers

The weather has been bad and I have not ridden as much as I wanted this winter. I'm thinking about buying a trainer for next winter. What types are there? What should I look for in one? and how much should a decent one cost? steingang2@verizon.net

Fluid ones are quietist. Searching "Kurt Kinetic" & "1Up" on these forums will show these are well regarded. May or may not want to get a dedicated trainer tire; search Continental Hometrainer and search Tacx trainer tire to read the pros and cons of trainer tires.

edit: You also might consider rollers.
