got one recently Stephen. He might be able to help you.
Looking to buy a turbo trainer, we just had our Irish budget so a third year of austerity begins to really bite - so unfortunately not a lot left in the personal budget for a 'fancy' turbo trainer. Looking for TS advice on good value TTs. Thanks!...
Gaina C Last time I rode before today, I had done a light weights session the night before and I found it much easier to peddle the next day (I'm a hand cyclist). I 'bonked' later into the ride and it wasn't half as bad as it usually is. Today I rode without doing weights the night before and the 'bonk' came earlier and lasted longer.
Does anyone else do strength training on their legs with weights? Is there a logical reason why it would make cycling easier the day after? I'd be fascinated to know!

Hello, I'm Michelle, and I am new to the community. I just got a new bike Friday and biked a little over 11 miles on Saturday. It was great! My time is limited due to work and grad school, but I hope to take some time a few times a week and ride.
Another addition: as I have more power than endurance (hare rather than tortoise), I will generally try to build up my speed as much as possible in the approach to a hill, injecting a burst of power in a higher gear on a approach so that I can pow...
