Other than mixing driving a car and drinking beer, I can’t see bicycling and beer being all that great a mix either. Last time I did that, college, I left the beer behind about a mile after riding… I have no wish to repeat that experience.
^ I don’t think you could be more wrong, roller racing and drinking beer go hand in hand!
“Rollers” ugh.. the worst of indoor bicycling. Not enough Resistance even with those fans, one false move and you ride off into the living room, take up a huge amount of storage space, and my chain spit oil all over the carpet. Good thing it was a rental… Tossed those rollers in favor of riding in the rain outside.
