Indoor Cycling Trainers

By Jesse Roberson

Welcome back cold weather!  It is always refreshing to revisit the cold months each year.  Why you might ask? The cold months are when you get the best use of indoor cycling trainers.  Cycling trainers are a great way to ride at your own pace, get some time on the bike regardless of weather, and not have to deal with the change in daylight hours.  Trainers are just a fraction of the cost to new fitness equipment, and you can get a workout that is top grade.  Your workout couldn’t be easier or more affordable.  Pop in a Spinning DVD or just a movie and pedal away.  Trainers are lots of fun, easy to use, and compatible with almost every bicycle made.  Road bike, mountain bike, hybrid bike, recumbent bike, they all work.  Check out the following trainers from CycleOps:
