As i still havn't manged to find anytime to get a Bike and get out there (Due to having 2 young children) and working 6 days a week i just thought an Exercise Bike might benefit me by being able to build up my Legs muscles whilst i figure out a way to get out for a few hours! I am only willing to spend as little as possible one...... Do you think it would be beneficial to me?? I have tried one in a Gym and thats how i wanted to start cycling as i enjoyed it, Very relaxing. ( i know any machine i buy will in no way compete with a gym machine) Although after 2 sessions of 20 mins on a Exercise bike my ass felt bruised!! Any thoughts on that?, Cheers Gaz.
