How good is it for cyclists? I've been laid off the bike (specifically sitting on a bike saddle :'(...) for almost 3 months ( - clean your shorts guys - ). So to avoid the boredom of doing nothing, I started rollerblading. I can feel I'm not quiite as sharp or as fit as I was before taking time off the bike, but my legs have never felt so stong - can't wait to get back pedalling and see has it improved my strength. Has anyone tried this as an off season sport? Did it work? Did you feel any stronger or did you find yourself feeling more "sluggish" and end up riding in big gears the whole time? I had skinny legs and was a religous pedaller... hate grinding big gears... but I've definitely gained some muscle mass especially around the thighs - the calves feel stronger too. But the question is - will it make me any faster on the bike? Any thoughts, comments, experiences ...??
