Living in the great white north has its benefits and its disadvantages. As a fellow who does not enjoy riding in sub-zero temperatures my geographical location provides me with an added training hurdle for a long period of time each year. I generally ride the trainer almost exclusively from October to April every year and this can be quite challenging mentally. Now I know some of you will say, "there is plenty of time to ride outside between those months". This is true, but I'd rather just hop on a ride instead of switching my bike on-and-off of the trainer and compiling a massive pile of laundry every ride.
