Now then, I start college tomorrow. That came around quick. I’m not looking forward to it for two reasons. The first being because it’s massively hard work and you don’t get anything to show for it until the end of the year, where you realise you should of worked harder and you’ve still got relatively little to show for all the effort you did put in. The second is related to the bike.
Time on the bike is limited at the best of times. I work online from home so any time I don’t spend infront of the pc is time I’m not getting paid. Now I don’t mind cycling taking over that time as I can go out early in the morning and work late into the night, or work in the morning etc. It’s flexible. But when I have to spend 7 hours of my day travelling, actually inside or travelling back from college, it just isn’t good. This means I’m losing money. In turn, this means I have to take valuable cycling time and trade it for pc time. Awkward, I know. Then the night starts drawing in, so I can no longer ride my bike straight after college. Something needs to give. Last year, it was the bike.
Fortunately, this year will be entirely different, the swift purchase of a turbo trainer before the end of the season will mean I get to ride my way through winter without losing time infront of the pc or on the bike. Result! But this opened a whole new can of worms. I never knew there was so much choice when it came to turbo’s! This is where our viewers come in. I need advice on what to buy and whether there will be any deals soon. I’m set on a turbo, not rollers as space is an issue. I need variable resistance to spice things up on the bike. One thing I’d like is a mat as I’m not known for having a spotless bike.
Please comment below with any suggestions or ideas and they’ll be greatly appreciated. Of course if you are the manufacturer of a new type of trainer and you’d like an impartial review, I’d be welcome to a loan. 😉
