Stationary bike vs. on the road

963 Views 24 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  LeftRightRepeat
Since I bought my bike in late Fall, I have only ridden outside a few times. I primarily use a stationary bike at the gym although I am considering buying a trainer. How can I compare the effort put forth on the gym bike to what I will experience on the road or for that matter on a trainer.

I don't think it compares to a ride outside but I can get a good workout on a stationary bike. Most of my indoor rides are done on my trainer which has a completely different "feel" to the stationary.
