It will make for a good excuse to ride during pre-dawn hours or when ever is ideal for you to go to the gym. I've seen a growing amount of riders show up. But of course not the hardcore body builders. good luck trying to ride after working out with those goals."Weight reduction starts at home"
some cardio before getting back on is a good start, that used to be my ritual.I've seen quite a few bikes at my local gym too, probably because there's always space for bikes to park whereas cars have to circle a bit before finding a spot. Shave off a few extra pounds and increase the amount of usable weight.
