    Other week got myself an exercise bike for winter, nought special but has a computer on it for time and coupled with a HRM of ebay for a tenner I reckon I can do some good workouts on it when weather is crap over winter.

    Just done one this morning which was this-

    5 mins warm up

    5 mins keeping HR about 85% ( fast spinning )

    5 mins easy

    5 mins keeping HR about 85% ( on hardest setting, so lowish cadence as if grinding uphill)

    5 mins easy

    5 mins keeping HR about 85% ( medium intensity )

    5 mins easy cool down

    After that i could feel the burn on my thighs nicely and best of all once of bike into shower and done, no muddy clothes, no bike to clean.

    2 other things you need are a drink bottle fastened to bike, towel nearby, a fan blasting in face and loud rock music blasting out nearby 😀

    Anyone else got some good workouts for exercise bikes?

    I thought you were a ‘Hardcore’ MTB chap, now i find out that you like pedaling inside 😥

    I think Aston was right, you strapping your GPS to some little tyke and sending them round the course to collect your Strava KOMs.

    I can’t belive this has all been a lie!

    I’m nothing if not a fair weather cyclist 😉

    Hence why I am staying indoors today in the dry and warm 😛

    I bought one from Argos cost me 150 quid its by York Fitness company, good bike it is too, went on it this morning to help kick my hangover 😀

    Is it important to keep to a set HR figure, as I just went on for 25mins started on level 6 then 8 and finished on level 10 for last 2 mins?
