Fair-weather cyclist, getting back in shape

So I've been off the road since...what...late September I think. Yep, I'm strictly a fair-weather cyclist. And I gained almost 15 lbs. since I stopped riding. Since mid-December I've taken up the trainer again, and I'm back up to riding a full hour at a steady 90-100 rpm. Oh yeah, I've already lost 3 lbs. this week alone. My winter season is about half over and I plan to be ready!

Your not alone here. I stopped right after Seagull. Instead of being down 20 more lbs buy now, im back up 10. A couple of weeks ago I started riding 2x a week during lunch and will crank up the weekend rides this weekend now that there are no more holiday committments.
