As a relative newcomer to road riding I have signed up for my first Sportive next April. 60miles.
I have been mountain biking for years but have not done much in the way of cycling for the last few years so am currently trying to maintain a weekly ride to build up my fitness - it almost feels like starting from scratch.
My dilemma is this though, I have Mon , Tues and Weds evenings available to train along with occasional Saturdays and Sundays (Wife works every other Sat morning)We have an 8 month old daughter so I'm trying to fit in riding which doesnt take up to much of my weekend with my daughter.
I have worked out that i could potentially fit in 30-60 mins of riding on either a turbo or rollers most evenings in the week with a long ride at the weekend.
With this in mind what would suit me best? rollers or Turbo?
I am not sure about the vasrious training methods for a turbo, but I want to acheive overall fitness, endurance and if possible power - my mate is already quite established in his fitness so i'd like to get somewhere close to beating him!!!
