I Swore I'd Never Do It
There was a time way back when (I looked for an old post to link to but gave up my search. I'm lazy) that I put in a fair amount of time on the indoor trainer in the winter. That was before I discovered the joys of winter mountain biking. Once I realized how freaking sweet snowmobile trails can be for riding, I swore that I'd never ride an indoor trainer aka "a bike lobotomy". Why waste your time sweating away in your basement watching shitty videos and counting the minutes until your done when there is sooooo much white corduroy outside?

bad conditions but at least I was outside.
Well, times change, schedules get tougher, bellies get bigger and you finally make the realization that the trainer is the ONLY WAY TO GET A "RIDE" IN SOME DAYS. As a result, Marcy and I decided to pony up for a newer, less horrific trainer. One that doesn't sound like a toaster making sweet love to a bench grinder.

I wish such drastic measure weren't necessary but I've been struggling to get 2 rides a week in and have been off the back on all group rides I've been to so something had to happen. Now it can and I'll hate every second of it.
