I really appreciate your input about rollers vs trainers. I may have been unclear in the OP, so please allow me to clarify:
Is there a video that shows a road/trail which has different elevations and “coaches” you in regards to gearing, cadence, etc…
Seems to me I once saw these things advertised for folks who use exercycles, which I realize is not the same thing. Also Nashbar has some training videos for sale, but I have no idea which one I should start with. (They feature Coach Troy and have really strange titles, but no descriptions).
So I hope y’all can help me a little better with this info. I just want to build my stamina and increase my mileage. I don’t wanna race.
BTW, I ride a cute little Schwinn Sierra “comfort” bike that I really enjoy!
Thanks again, Anachronism!
