  • I’ve got a road bike & I have just purchased a bike trailer..so my 17 month old son can sit in that, to try and get my fitness and health back on track. We have lots of hills to ride around and my gosh..its a hard workout, towing 17 kgs of weight behind me up hills.

  • I use an exercise bike, about twice a week – on other days I walk, swim, or take a dance class.

  • Non at the moment but always used to bike. Living in the Netherlands I always biked to and from everything several hours a day and had no car. Only got my license when I was 41yrs old.
    Running after the kids is a pretty good exercise too :)

  • I used an exercise bike years ago. I also had one of those things, like an exercise bike, but you stand up on it. Can’t think of the name. I used them til they broke, I found them really handy

  • I have an exercise bike. Used to use it every day, but now it’s very infrequent.

  • I used a bike all the time and it was fun and a good way to exercise!

  • i’ve had both, prefer outdoor one… can get seats/trailers for babies/toddler too.

  • i have both but i use the exercise bike more just because i have littlies

  • I think an exercise bike is a lot safer these days.

  • I’ve got an exercise bike but I don’t use it that much.

  • I bought a bike with good intentions to ride but have only used it twice!

  • mom81879 – good points about an inside exercise bike. Can then cycle with all types of weather.

  • I had an exercise bike until it fell apart :/ They’re good as you can do it inside and not be interrupted by the weather. You can also do it in front of the tv or while you read a book or do crossword puzzles. But the outdoors ones are fun too, lots of different rides to keep you interested

  • Good old fashioned bike, but inly use it on the weekend for family rides.

  • I have a bike in the garage and time to get to know it again! ;)
