So now me and my broken leg are mending well and are safely installed on the turbo to start notching up some miles again! I did 5 miles yesterday and was triumphant (if sweaty) at the end. And yep....turbos ARE dull, but I'm loving being back on the bike and am slowly working my way through my 6 series box set of Sex and the City, so I'm actually quite enjoying it. I suspect I'll be locked into the turbo until April at least - or until I can safely put my leg down in an emergency. I was wondering if turbo miles are the same as real miles, not so much in distance but in terms of impact on fitness and preparation. As you know, we've got our big bike tour planned this summer and there should be no reason I can't go...but I just want to find out if 100 miles on a turbo would be the same as 100 miles on the road in terms of preparation. I have to log off now and go back to my desk etc but thanks in advance for any info.
