A SpinningBikeas a matter of fact is an awesomeintricateway of saying ‘stationary bike' and it simply meansindoor riding. It doesn'tcount if you'rein the gym or at home, you'llget the benefits - not forgettingsometreatsas well.

Becausea spinning bike is keptundercover, you canwork outevery time you please, no unpleasant weather to worry about; no riskyroads; nothing that canpuncture the tires; no ignorantmotorists; or not so bike-unfriendlypedestrians or cops. To my mind, safety is a greatfactor, so isthe ease toleap off the bike and endyourriding without driving or riding home.
Bearing in the amountelements, well, you're going to find thatusing a spinning bike is less costly than, say, a treadmill; this one I adore, if you own a bike already, you canfasten it to acycle trainer, cheaper still - here you get both the benefits of indoor and outdoorcycling.
