Take Your Cycling Indoors
When the weather is too cold and the roads are snowy and icy, try indoor cycling. Many gyms and fitness clubs offer indoor cycling classes that are free with a gym membership or can be paid for per class. A benefit of indoor cycling is that, although you have an instructor guiding you through a workout, you can go at your own intensity and won’t be left behind. With indoor cycling you can keep the resistance low and go for an easy ride or increase the resistance and practice “climbing hills.”
If you like to work out at home, you can purchase a stationary bike or a bike trainer to set your road bike on to do indoor cycling. There are also indoor cycling DVD’s available that take you through workouts, just like at the gym.
