Doing long rides outside may be difficult on local roads for a while, as the weather has definitely taken a turn. With snow packed roads and icy shoulders, outdoor cycling is just about shut down for now.
Turning to indoor cycling is a good alternative. Most gyms in town have some kind of cycling machines. Many have spin classes. And many fortunate athletes have cycling trainers, rollers or CompuTrainers at home on which they can use their own bikes to get a safe and warm workout. . .
