Work is just something I do while I'm out on a bike ride…

This in from "Treadly and Me" A commuting and recreational cycling site in Melbourne, Australia The whole article is well worth the read For a cycling commuter, riding fitness is being able to get to work and back easily, plus having a bit left in reserve.
1. Change your wheels (try a different bike once in a while) 2. Race yourself (make each day a time trial) 3. Take the long way home (in my case, I have more time in the morning so that is when I can stretch my route) 4. Change your heart rate (use a heart rate monitor) 5. Head for the hills (try mountain biking) 6. Work on your speed (there is nothing like a little friendly competition) 7. Work on your endurance (occasionally double or triple your commute distance) 8. Work on your cadence (where am I going to find a velodrome?) 9. Load-up (tow something - I prefer my oldest son’s version which involves loading up a backpack with free-weights) 10. Go nowhere (use an exercise bike or indoor trainer) 11. Cross-train (try jogging)
