Ok, then, this past weekend really was better for cycling indoors. I managed 30 miles both Saturday and Sunday. It's more like work, but some Led Zep and Guns & Roses on the Mp3 player makes it bearable. That's something I can't do on the road.
This trainer thing seems to be more about keeping the heartrate in the desired zone, and it's easier on the trainer. I hope this work pays off on the road. May be the weather will cooperate next week and I can go play in the traffic again.
