Riding In The Gym

I have always resisted using the stationary bikes in the gym opting for the elliptical machine instead. While going through this months issue of Bicycle Magazine I read an article on winter training. It intrigued me and yesterday I did one of the four suggested routines. Well to put is succinctly and in a nice way, it was a bitch and I liked it. During the first set I was visualizing having a heart attack but that passed. The article recommend 2-4 sets and I did 3. It also recommends adding these routines to your weekend rides that are not happening in my neck of the woods with all this snow.

Eight 20 second sprints with a 10 second spin in between.
Do 2-4 sets with a 1-2 minutes easy spin between sets.

Today it’s snowing again, no surprise there.

On the down side, my riding partner and #3 replacement son loaded his dog and his belongings into his pickup truck and began his drive to his new home in Austin, Texas. I made a video of his hiking, biking and travel adventures for his mother.
