    Stationary Bikes

    It's a completely different experience and in my opinion in no way comparable to the joys of actually riding outdoors. I've used them before a few months after I broke my leg because I was in no condition to take mine for a spin.

    Do You Crave A New Bike?

    For me it's the other way around, I often feel bad for even thinking about replacing my perfectly functional older bike for a newer one.

    Generally speaking regular glasses are fine, but if you are willing to get prescription glasses than get ones that are UVA or at the very least UVB and preferably polarised.

    Beginner. How Often Should I Train?

    You don't need to restrain yourself to pre-made plans. Gauge your body signals and see what works best for YOU. A lot of people ignore this and it's the reason why there are so many different plans and beliefs.

    Balanced Diet

    To be honest, protein shakes all look a bit dodgy to me. I'm not going to question their quality but for some reason I just don't trust them. I have a very balanced diet and I never felt like I needed artificial reinforcements.

    Need A Mountain Bike

    Nothing too fancy, but strong enough so I won't need to replace it any time soon. I'm willing to stretch it as far as 700£. The only thing I need is for it to be very comfortable for long duration courses, also I would prefer something lighter.
