Ride Your Outdoor Bike Inside?

Now that it's chilly out, and the roads are covered with snow and ice, you're not about to get on your bike and go for a ride.

Don't go out and spend tons of money on a stationary bike - you can transform your favorite bike into a cycle trainer.
Here's how it works - remove the bike's front wheel and mount your back wheel into the cycle trainer mounts elevating your bike. Although, they can be pretty pricey, ranging from $100-300+, the cycle trainer beats buying a whole new piece of exercise equipment.

You can also use rollers - but they are for more experienced riders to improve balance, because they require more concentration than just hopping on and going for a ride.

Fit's Tips: The Kinetic Road Machine comes highly recommended because it attaches and releases to your bike easily and folds in half for easy storage. Plus, it's quiet enough to use while watching TV so you can catch up on all those shows you recorded on your TiVo.

I have had a magnetic trainer for two or three years for use during the winter months. I highly recommend getting a trainer before wasting money on a stationary bike. Cycling inside is great because I can listen to music while riding. (I don't listen to music while on the road since I need to listen to traffic). Trainers are also great for small apartments because you can store them in a closet or under the bed.

I just learned about this idea because my aunt has done this to her bicycle. My husband has the day off today and he's getting one for me! I can't wait to hop on tonight and burn off some of these holiday pounds.
